What is pediatric care?

Saint Elizabeth provides personalized care to families with children from birth to the age of 21. Our program is based on best clinical practices and evidence.

Receiving care in your home or community

We work in collaboration with families to deliver care in the environment best suited to the child's needs - most often at home or in a school environment. Most children who receive home and community care are:

  • Experiencing an acute childhood illness or injury: Health services may include dialysis, pain management, infusion therapy, rehabilitation, nutritional support, respite services, and supporting the ability of children with complex medical and health needs to attend school.
  • Living with long term or chronic complex care needs: Children are often dependent on technology. Care may include helping the family establish a routine for their child's needs, family caregiver support, helping the family to remain as independent as possible, and supporting the ability of children with complex medical and health needs to attend school.
  • Living with chronic illness but needing some help: Includes monitoring and support for children, who are often seen in our School Health Support program and shift program.

How we can help

We understand the unique physical and emotional needs of caring for a child with health issues. That's why we work in collaboration with families to deliver a customized care experience. Our goal is to empower families with knowledge and skills to be as independent as possible. Our services include:
