“Every year is vital in the life of a child.” - Jack McConnell
As a team, we are committed to provide care and services that are guided by the needs of families and are perceived as flexible, accessible, responsive and sensitive. Therefore, we develop systems that enable staff to respond to family preferences and priorities in a timely and creative manner.
We believe that care should be provided by an identifiable health care team that includes families as an integral part of developing a plan and caring for their children. The family-professional partnership is based on mutual respect for the understanding that each brings to the situation.
We strive to provide coordinated care and linkages between our services and the family's community, including schools, local physicians, services and agencies.
