Pediatric services

The Medical Center Home Care Program has necessary skilled providers within nursing and rehab services to provide pediatric patients (0-18 years of age) quality care.

From meeting the needs of developmentally delayed children to providing Synagis injections to help prevent Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) for high risk babies, the staff can offer prescribed services to assist families and their children.

Two specific pediatric programs offered are The First Steps Program and EPSDT (Early Periodic Screening and Diagnostic Treatment). The First Steps program is designed for children from birth through two years of age with developmental delays. The EPSDT service is a comprehensive and preventive child health program for individuals under the age of 21. Both programs incorporate physical, occupational and speech therapies. Call (270) 745-1006 for more information related to these services.
