Other Notes

  • For parents, we understand how extremely difficult it is to leave the care of your child in the hands of someone else. We also realize the delicate circumstances involved with children who have ongoing medical needs. That’s why we have implemented this highly specialized program with qualified, nurturing care professionals.

    Pediatric Day Health Centers provide non-residential healthcare for Medicaid-eligible children from birth through age 21 with medically complex conditions requiring continuous therapeutic or skilled nursing supervision. PediaKare includes an array of services focused on the developmental, medical, nutritional, physical, and social needs of the children.

    PDHC’s reduce the isolation that homebound children may experience.
