Allegro Pediatrics is a large, private pediatric organization with over 85 providers and 8 clinics, serving the eastside of Seattle since 1957. Allegro’s mission is to partner with families to nurture, heal, and empower their child’s journey to adulthood. This holistic health model encompasses mental health and has evolved over the years to include the spectrums of autism, ADHD, anxiety, depression, disordered eating, and more. Cognizant of the growing mental health crisis, and even predating the Covid-19 pandemic, Allegro began transitioning from a community partnership model to the development of an integrated behavioral health program. Presently Allegro has a small, centralized team of behavioral health specialists providing support for patients and providers. Allegro’s vision is to expand this team model into every local clinic to further integrate pediatric physical and mental health within the broader care community.
