Exceptional Care for Children improves the lives of technology-dependent children and their families through skilled nursing, transitional services, and palliative care. We are a haven for healing fragile bodies when improvement is possible, and a refuge for nurturing vulnerable spirits when a cure is unattainable.

As Delaware’s first and only pediatric skilled nursing facility and a Top-100 Nursing Home, Exceptional Care for Children takes pride in caring for our very inspiring residents and providing them with as normal a childhood as possible despite their medical challenges.

The number of consecutive years we’ve been award-winning.

The number of children who've called ECC home.

The number of health care professionals we have on-site.


Every child deserves a childhood, and considering what our children overcome each and every day, they deserve a truly exceptional one. With the support of generous donors, we are able to go above and beyond for our kids, and provide the joys of childhood in a home-like environment.
