The UC Davis Children’s Hospital opened a clinic Tuesday for pediatric patients with antibiotic-resistant staph infections.

Located on the hospital campus at 2315 Stockton Blvd. in Sacramento, the clinic accepts referrals from primary care physicians.

Dean Blumberg, chief of pediatric infectious disease at UC Davis, has been caring for patients with methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus — better known as MRSA — for more than a decade and has developed ways to treat it and prevent future outbreaks.
