Exceptional Care for Children, 11 Independence Way, Newark, DE


Exceptional Care for Children (ECC) began as a vision for an improved model of care for medically fragile and technology dependent children in 2006. From that initial vision, ECC has grown to become an innovative leader in pediatric healthcare. Currently home to up to forty-six children, ECC is a sought after leader in pediatrics and long term care. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services has given ECC a Five-Star rating certifying excellence in all categories of consideration, including deficiency free surveys in 2017 and 2019. In 2019, the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce (DSCC)’s Small Business Alliance (SBA) awarded ECC with the Marvin S. Gilman Superstars in Business Award.

The future of Exceptional Care for Children is bright and our dreams are bold. With your support, we can accomplish those dreams and continue to meet the unique needs of medically fragile children and young adults throughout the State of Delaware and the Mid-Atlantic region. Your generosity will help bring children home to Exceptional Care for Children and ensure that they have the opportunity to live out a childhood into their adult years, despite their medical obstacles. For more information on program, services, and projects at ECC, please visit exceptionalcare.org.


Focus for 2022

Proceeds from this year’s event will support ECC’s Bridge Unit construction and expansion project, which will allow ECC to care for residents into adolescence and young adulthood. Learn more about The Bridge Unit here.



Join us on Saturday, October 22nd, for a special, cocktail attire evening benefitting the residents of Exceptional Care for Children (ECC). With fine dining, dancing, a large silent auction, and guest appearances from ECC residents, it will truly be a night to remember!
