New Pediatric Clinics Location for Cottage Health

GOLETA – Cottage Children’s Medical Center opened the new Grotenhuis Pediatric Clinics recently on Hollister Ave. The facility is housed on the second floor of the new medical office building at the corner of Hollister and Patterson avenues, next door to the new Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital.

The 10,000 square-foot location brings together in one building the clinics for these pediatric subspecialties: gastroenterology, hematology/oncology, endocrinology, rheumatology, pulmonology, nephrology and high-risk infant follow-up. Previously, these clinics had been in several different locations in Santa Barbara. Placing these pediatric subspecialties in one location adds convenience to the high level of care patients receive.

Ten-year old Darianna Leon, the first patient at the new clinic location, participated in the ribbon cutting to celebrate the opening of the new facility on August 2, 2016.

“This new facility will greatly enhance our ability to care for children with specialized needs, and will allow us to promote the care of the “whole child” in a setting that is both efficient and therapeutic,” said Dr. Steven C. Barkley, Chief Pediatric Medical Officer and Medical Director of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Cottage Children’s Medical Center based at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.

The Grotenhuis Pediatric Clinics, at 5333 Hollister Ave. in Goleta, are open Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 5 pm. For appointments, call 805-879-4240.
