Mary Bridge Children’s
Pediatrics Northwest and Mary Bridge Children’s have worked together for many years and share a passion and commitment for expanding access to health services to give children the support they need for healing and a healthy future. Together, we will focus on improving the health of children in the communities we serve with innovative solutions and programs for families, and coordinated care for your child.
Reach Out and Read
“The single most important activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading is reading aloud to children.”
—The Commission on Reading, Becoming a Nation of Readers
Pediatrics Northwest is pleased to be an ongoing partner with the national award-winning Reach Out and Read program. Reach Out and Read makes books part of a healthy childhood and a standard part of pediatric care. Through this program, children grow up with books and develop a love of reading.
New Books to Take Home
At every well-child exam from the age of 6 months to 5 years, our patients receive a new, developmentally-appropriate children’s book to take home and keep. In fact, we raise funds for Reach Out and Read and distribute more than 12,000 books annually to our families.
