SERVICES:

  • Long Term Care for children with chronic health care needs who can call ECC their home until the age of 21.
  • Transitional Care for children who are in between hospital and home. We offer comprehensive training to family members to prepare them for a safe transition home.
  • Palliative/End of Life Care for children who are diagnosed with a terminal illness. Extensive services are available to families to ease this difficult transition.
  • Respite Care to allow caregivers a much-needed break.

PHYSICIAN SERVICES:

Weekly on-site rounds held with board-certified Nemours pediatricians who specialize in the care of children with complex medical needs. Residents are seen quarterly for full physicals and weekly as needed for sick visits. Both primary and specialty
