Outpatient Pediatric Care

Children's Outpatient Clinic

The Children’s Outpatient Clinic at KHSC’s Hotel Dieu Hospital site serves patients from birth until their 18th birthday.

The staff at COPC are committed to ensuring that their patients and families feel safe and have a complete understanding of the care experience. We encourage you to ask questions at any time about your child’s
