Let us introduce ourselves

Our Pediatric-specific medical staff at Mountain Area Pediatrics consists of six Board Certified Pediatricians. Additionally, our ancillary clinical staff of Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, Certified Medical Assistants, and Phlebotomists, offer top-notch care with countless years of experience.

Our Pediatricians are on the admitting medical staff at Mission Hospital for newborns, and have close working relationships with the “big kid” inpatient pediatric hospitalists/intensivists. Whatever your pediatric needs may be, the staff at Mountain Area Pediatrics will assist you with compassion, professionalism, and expertise!

From a Dream to a Reality

Mountain Area Pediatrics (MAPA) transitioned from being a dream to a reality when Dr. J. Bennett Bailey started the practice in 1980. Dr. Bailey (Dr. Ben as he is known by his patients and countless others who adore him) strived to provide personalized, thoughtful, compassionate care to his patients.

He always took time to listen. Many have said that “Dr. Ben is worth the wait because I know that when he is with my child, my child is the only thing in this world during the very special visit.” Since 1980, more than 60,000 children have passed through the doors of MAPA.
