Kids Path

All children need special care.  Children with illnesses, however, need the type of care that only our Kids Path® program can provide.  Kids Path is a unique program for children, ranging in age from infancy to eighteen years of age, who are living with a serious illness or condition.  Our pediatric care team offers physical, emotional, and spiritual care with a goal of enhancing the quality of life for children and teens and also their families.

A Kids Path staff RN can make intermittent home visits (as ordered by a doctor). Kids Path team members may include a social worker, nursing assistant, physical therapist, and other disciplines as ordered, to meet specific treatment goals.  A physician's order is required for home care services.
