Special Care for Special Kids
Our Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care (PPEC) Center provides an
array of services for children with special medical needs. Services
include day healthcare, developmental planning and interventions,
therapies, case management, and parent support and education.
Our staff of nurses and pediatric professionals works directly with
pediatricians, therapists, social workers, developmental
specialists, teachers, pediatric sub-specialists and dieticians to
provide special-needs children comprehensive medical care. The staff
is trained to identify and treat acute illnesses or chronic
conditions in order to avert possible hospitalization and
interruption in the child’s treatment program.
Transportation services are available for eligible children, making
it easier for parents to go to work or take an ill child’s siblings
to school each day.
The Loving Touch
Our PPEC Center is a friendly and nurturing place for children who
require health-focused care and therapy services during the day.
Children also receive the benefits of socialization and peer
stimulation, which is a unique advantage to this type of program.
Parents benefit as well by having the peace of mind that their
children are receiving tender loving care when they are not at home.
