Service Delivery

The HSC Pediatric Center is a leader in providing innovative, highly effective rehabilitation and medical care for children with complex medical problems and disabilities.

HSC cares for children as individuals and develops each child’s own individually designed care program. The individual care plan will make sure the right medical and rehabilitation services are provided to meet patient goals.

If inpatient, the family will be asked to be a part of the team and to meet early in the stay to continue discussing the care plan.

  • Reactive airway disease
  • Traumatic injury
  • Severe gastrointestinal disorders
  • Sickle cell anemia
  • Chromosome abnormalities
  • Burns
  • Fetal alcohol syndrome
