UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh has added to its set of subspecialty care centers with the opening of a clinic in Washington County.

The clinic, which is located at Washington Hospital, will offer endrocrinology, neurology and gastroenterology now and will add more subspecialties later. Specialists will go to the center to meet with patients and provide diagnostics and followup care. There is also a UPMC Children's Express Care center at the hospital.

"As the need for these services in Washington and surrounding counties has increased, we recognize this opportunity to accommodate families in the region," said UPMC Children's Executive Administrator, Ambulatory and Physician Services, Michael Comunale, in a statement. "This location allows us to create timely access to world-class care in a convenient manner for our patients and families providing both in person and video visits."

There are other centers in Sharon, Johnstown and Erie.
