Who We Are & What We Do: Pediatric Long Term Care

The Pediatric Long Term Care Center at Children’s Specialized Hospital provides exceptional care for children with complex medical conditions. Our two Pediatric Long Term Care Centers in Northern and Central New Jersey are home to many medically fragile children whose families’ current circumstances no longer allow them to be cared for in the home or other community setting. Our commitment to Patient and Family Centered Care sets us apart from other Pediatric Long Term Care Centers by ensuring that your goals for your child are heard and incorporated into their medical and therapeutic care plan. Our team of medical, respiratory, and therapeutic health care professionals develop each child’s unique care plan by partnering with your family to best meet the medical and emotional needs of your child.
