Our experience of serving children with
medical needs have equipped us with the
unique understanding that children are not
just small adults. Children in non acute
care settings have a number of distinctive
care needs, such as growth and
developmental issues, often complicated by their medical
fragility. Additionally, acute attention and
monitoring is essential to sustaining the often narrow
margin of safety when considering patient size and
weight relative to pulmonary management, medication, and
other medical needs.
We realize that
the self-esteem, self-confidence, and small
triumphs of a child are often brought about
by plenty of encouragement, hugs, and
smiles. We also provide onsite playground,
and daily enrichment programs. Our
goal is to help each child reach his or her
potential safely, in a fun-filled caring
PATCHES offers parents the
