The Center for Child Protection at Children’s Hospital & Research Center Oakland offers a full range of medical and mental health services to children and adolescents impacted by abuse and/or exposure to violence. As the designated site for forensic medical services in Alameda County, our medical staff conducts forensic medical evaluations for possible child abuse or neglect of children from birth to 18 years of age. We have a special program called the D.O.V.E.S. Project that offers education, screening, counseling and advocacy services to battered caregivers and to children exposed to domestic violence.
Acute forensic examinations are performed by Center for Child Protection medical staff for children 14 years and younger when the alleged sexual abuse occurred within 72 hours. Adolescents 14 years and older who require an acute medical evaluation after recent sexual assault should be referred to Highland Hospital by calling (510) 437-8341.
Non-acute forensic examinations for children under the age of 18 are performed in the Center for Child Protection’s outpatient clinic by appointments only. Community physicians may refer GU-related medical issues to the outpatient clinic.
