Free Child Care During Your Appointment at the Sugar House Health Center

Children playing at daycareWorrying about child care should never prevent you and your family from getting the health care you need. At the Sugar House Health Center, we’ll take care of your kids during your appointment!

Our caregivers are trained in CPR, first-aid, and best practices for early childhood development. Our quality care includes activities, crafts, and other learning activities. Our goal is to help make your visit as easy as possible.
