What is a referral network?

A referral network is a large group of medical care providers specializing in many different specific areas of health care. Northern Pediatrics has an extensive referral network of trusted providers from around the Portland area. 

The Northern Pediatrics providers refer primarily to dedicated children’s hospitals and medical networks that specialize in children’s health, including Randall Children’s Hospital in Portland, Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in West Haven-Sylvan, and OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland. 


When might I need to access the referral network?

You might need to access the referral network if your child has specialized medical needs that Northern Pediatrics can’t cover. Northern Pediatrics normally handles all of your child’s routine medical needs, from newborn care to adolescent care, including vaccines and mental health treatment. 


But certain situations may call for advanced testing, surgery, or other care best performed by a specialist. Some examples of such situations include:


  • Hernias
  • Sleep apnea
  • Tonsil abnormalities
  • Recurrent ear infections
  • Severe treatment-resistant acne
  • Suspicious skin lesions or rashes
  • Scoliosis
  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Developmental delays
  • Craniofacial abnormalities


Northern Pediatrics has a comprehensive referral network poised to meet any need your child may have.


How does the referral network work?

The first step in the referral process is an exam at Northern Pediatrics. Your child may need testing or other types of evaluation during their exam, which allows their provider to narrow down the problem and the specialist best suited for the situation.


Northern Pediatrics then coordinates the appropriate referral, and the specialist offices will contact you directly to schedule an appointment. 


Thanks to this well-established referral network, your child can get the exact type of care they need in the fastest time possible. And, best of all, you can truly trust the specialists within the referral network because the Northern Pediatrics providers personally chose them based upon their proven skills and qualifications.
