Elevated Family Care
Children’s Hospital Rehabilitation Center provides local children
access to comprehensive, pediatric-focused physical medicine, sleep studies
and physiatry outside of the hospital walls. Over the past year, this
center introduced ways to involve families in their child’s care,
including a nurse who is specially-certified in massage therapy for premature
newborns, and a new intensive feeding program for children with complex
eating disorders. Children’s Hospital Rehabilitation Center elevates
family-centered care in the hospital and in the community.
