Pediatric Associates was founded in 1968 by Dr. Jack Andrews. Jack was recruited by the newly constructed Chippenham hospital to start up a pediatric practice across Hioaks Road from Chippenham Hospital. Pediatric Associates is the oldest pediatric practice on the Southside of Virginia. We still practice out of the original location on Hioaks Road in an old farmhouse built in 1924. With steady growth, we were able to expand our practice and open our Waterford location in 2010. Read more about our 9 medical providers:
