New Southcoast Health Pediatric Office in Wareham Expands Access to Care

WAREHAM, Mass. –Southcoast Health is proud to announce the expansion of our pediatric services in Wareham. The new practice will be located in the Rosebrook Center and will open to patients on Monday, February 14. This is the sixth Southcoast Health Pediatrics location in the region, part of the organization’s commitment to expanding access to care for children and families across the South Coast.

The new office will provide services from two local providers: Katie Collins, DNP, CPNP, and John Leimert, MD, who currently practice in Southcoast Health’s Dartmouth location. Both providers will continue to see patients in the Dartmouth office, and they will now also offer services to the residents of Wareham and its surrounding towns at the Rosebrook location.

“Southcoast Health recognized the need for an expanded access to exceptional pediatric care in the region,” says Dr. Leimert. “Wareham and its surrounding communities represent a large population on the South Coast and we are proud to grow our practice to better serve our youngest patients and their families in the community.”

Southcoast Health Pediatrics accepts patients from infancy to adolescence, offering high-quality specialized care from a team of board-certified pediatricians and certified pediatric nurse practitioners.

“As a resident of the local area for the past 37 years, I have seen firsthand the tremendous growth that our community is experiencing,” says Katie Collins, DNP, CPNP. “Expected to have a similar patient volume to our Dartmouth office, the new practice location offers additional convenience for many patients. We are looking forward to offering the excellent pediatric care our community has come to expect in this new location.”

Southcoast Health Pediatricians provide a wide range of services including physical exams, vaccinations, lung and heart exams, diabetes management, sports injury treatment, and more to keep children healthy during crucial developmental years.

In addition to pediatric care, and in response to the coronavirus pandemic, Southcoast Health is also offering Pfizer vaccine appointments for children ages 5-11 years old at designated pediatric vaccine clinics every Tuesday, 4 pm – 7 pm, at the Vanity Fair Outlet located at 375 Faunce Corner Road in Dartmouth.
