East Liberty Family Health Care Center has been caring for children for more than 30 years at offices in East Liberty, the Hill District, and Lincoln-Lemington.

Our courteous and knowledgeable staff works hard from first contact to make every visit to our office positive. Whether it’s your child’s first visit, a well-child checkup, or sick encounter, we strive to make sure you and your child are always comfortable and informed.

Our Pediatric Team provides the highest quality care to our patients focusing on the whole child including their physical, emotional and spiritual needs. We emphasize wellness and prevention while addressing current acute and chronic illnesses. We address behavioral, developmental, and social issues that affect children. We pride ourselves in offering high-quality medical care in a community setting.

Equally important, our pediatric team builds relationships with entire families and offer prayer at every visit. Our team is committed to ELFHCC’s mission and unique identity as salt and light in the city of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County. We want to be lifelong partners in your child’s health and offer healing and hope to the families we serve. Children who grew up as patients of the health center are now bringing their children to the center to see our caring staff.

The Pediatric Team is led by Dr. Gregory Anderson and Dr. Charles Bemm, board certified pediatricians, and supported by Betty Mae Tatman, a nationally certified Pediatric Nurse Practitioner.

The team provides age-appropriate care, including:

  • Well-child visits
  • Immunizations
  • Sports physicals
  • Sick visits
  • Same-day appointments for urgent concerns
  • Asthma education and support
  • Parent/child education
  • Spanish interpreting

We accept most insurances including MA products and also uninsured patients. 

We take the time to talk with parents to help you understand your child’s needs, and we equip you with the knowledge necessary for promoting a lifetime of optimal health and wellness. In addition, ELFHCC offers educational programs throughout the year to families. One such program is the GROW (Girls Realizing their Own Worth) class, which is offered for 9–12 year old female patients and their mother or female guardian. This program helps educate mothers with accurate information to better guide their daughter through puberty focusing on health, safety and self-respect.
