Working Together to Meet Your Child's Needs
- Advanced Care for Complex and Chronic Conditions in Children
You have an extra special kid who deserves extra special care — care you’ll find under one roof at our Complex Care Clinic. Designed to provide enhanced services to children and adolescents (up to age 21) with special health needs, the pediatric complex care clinic offers comprehensive care to children with conditions expected to last more than one year and requiring more than two specialties.
Complex, chronic conditions in children we treat include, but are not limited to:
- Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia
- Cerebral Palsy
- Chromosomal Anomalies
- Congenital Heart Defects
- Developmental Delay
- Multi-System Congenital Anomalies
- Respiratory System Anomalies
- Technology-Dependent Children
- Making Complex Pediatric Care Appointments More Convenient
You hit the ground running every morning. And you have a pretty good idea about how much you can shoehorn in before your head hits the pillow each night. You don't have time to drive to multiple doctor's appointments in separate offices across town. That's why we offer easy access to a team of pediatric care experts who can review your child's diagnosis and create a care plan in one location, at one time.
- Compassionate and Supportive Pediatric Palliative Care
Life is a continuous path. There are no dead-ends, just bridges. On this unimaginable journey, you may feel as though you are standing before a final bridge. One that begins when you have to let go of your child's hand and watch her cross without you.
You are here because you need to be, because you’ve been set on a difficult path. Likely the hardest path you’ll ever walk. You are not alone. We are here to hold your hand. We are here to cry with you, pray with you. And we are here to provide pediatric palliative care that eases your child's pain and opens up windows of comfort, so that you can make the most of the time you have together.
As your pediatric palliative-care team, we're here to coordinate all the health-care providers caring for your child and family. We will support you as you make difficult decisions about treatment options and dedicate each day to easing your child’s pain. Our mission is to love your child as you do and provide the support you need to be completely present each day. We will never stop fighting for your child's best health outcome. And we will never stop caring for your family. We are here marking these important moments with you. Please let us know how we can serve you better.
