We Are For Children, LLC is a Pediatric Physician Organization formed in 2011 to help members respond to changing healthcare market forces.

Our mission: To enhance members’ ability to deliver the highest quality patient care to the children they serve; to improve the health of the children in our communities; and to increase the professional satisfaction and operational effectiveness of our members as independent practices.

For Pediatricians

All WAFC members are independent pediatric practices who “speak the same language” and share variations of the same goals. WAFC is the collective voice that advocates knowledgeably and forcefully on members’ behalf.

We help members improve patient care by sponsoring care initiatives, developing formularies and more.
