HINSDALE practice JOINS pediatrust

Hinsdale Pediatrics and PediaTrust have announced they will join forces in their efforts to provide high quality medical care to pediatric patients.

In a healthcare market where large health systems dominate, independent pediatric practices provide parents and their children access to deeply personal medical care. A child’s relationship with his or her pediatrician lays the foundation for a lifetime of good health.

“We are very excited to take this step,” said Dr. Mufadal Moosabhoy, one of the managing partners of Hinsdale Pediatrics. “We feel that the pediatric practices of PediaTrust are a great fit with very similar values and a passion to care for patients. Joining PediaTrust will allow us to expand the services we can provide while giving us the administrative and technological support we need to remain independent from hospital systems.

“As a part of PediaTrust, our patients can look forward to continuing to receive the best patient care and service from the same doctors and staff in our Hinsdale office.”

Founded more than 50 years ago, the physicians and staff of Hinsdale Pediatrics have had the privilege of caring for generations of families in the western suburbs. They take pride in helping the children reach their highest potential by working side-by-side with parents. With a focus on promoting and maintaining both physical and emotional well-being, Hinsdale Pediatrics’ seven board-certified pediatricians and extended clinical care team work to build lifelong relationships with families.

PediaTrust formed in 2012 when seven long-established pediatric practices united in their effort to provide world-class pediatric care while remaining independent. After the merger with Hinsdale Pediatrics, PediaTrust represents more than 80 clinicians in 12 pediatric groups with 21 locations throughout the northern, northwestern and western suburbs of Chicago.
