New pediatrician joins Childcare Physicians 

Serving the Metro East area since 1965, Childcare Physicians, formerly known as the Association of Childcare Physicians, will be welcoming a new pediatrician to their staff.

Dr. Kathryn Wade joins Dr. Robert Kellow and counselor Rebecca Salah at their Swansea practice. Providing pediatric care for children from birth through young adult, Wade is a board-certified physician with more than 10 years of pediatric experience.

Wade completed her undergraduate degree at Saint Louis University and then received her medical degree at Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine. She completed her Pediatrics Residency at Indiana University’s Riley Children’s Hospital. Wade said she is happy to be back in the St. Louis area after traveling with her husband’s military career and is looking forward to settling down and raising her three children near family.

“Truly, the best part of my job is being able to get to know each family over time, and I consider it an honor and a privilege to be a part of their children’s lives,” said Wade.

Wade will join the practice in March.

Childcare Physicians serves approximately 4,000 patients. Kellow started practicing in 1994 at Fort Leonard Wood Army Hospital and joined the Childcare Physician’s practice in 1998 after relocating to Belleville.
