Mt. Sterling Pediatrics was founded in 2009. Our physician, Dr. Brandy Fouch, and our pediatric nurse practitioner, Shasta Kessler, are here to provide you with the best possible care. We utilize an entirely electronic health system, which decreases medical errors, increases efficiency and allows better preservation of your child's medical records. This also allows your child's entire medical history to be available at each visit to our office.


Office hours are Monday – Friday 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM.

Referring hospitals:

Due to our regional location, Dr. Fouch admits some patients to St. Joseph Mt. Sterling Hospital for basic disease and illness management. However, the majority of our patients requiring inpatient care are transferred to Kentucky Children's Hospital in Lexington, or to Cincinnati Children's Hospital. These medical centers provide access to pediatric specialists and have facilities that are better suited for children. Many parents may feel more comfortable in that environment. We will work with your family to provide the best possible care for your child.
