About

Our History

Christ Care Pediatrics was founded in 1991 on the idea that our lives are a gift from our Creator. The mission He has given us is to share the love and message of Jesus Christ while addressing the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our patients and their families.

When Dr. Maggie Lawentmann, a Family Medicine physician who provides care for adults as well as children, joined our practice in the spring of 2012 we changed our name to Christ Care Pediatrics and Family Medicine.

In July of 2013 we opened a satellite pediatric office with extended hours within Gahm’s Pharmacy in Lucasville, Ohio. We are glad that this new location has made it easier for families from northern Scioto and Pike Counties come to us for care.

We are also pleased to be affiliated with Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital in Northeastern Greenup County. Their mission is to bring health and wholeness as part of the healing ministry of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church, and they are one of the very few community hospitals which continue to make a strong commitment to provide outstanding inpatient pediatric care with experienced pediatric nurses. We can, however, treat families in our offices who desire to use other hospitals.
