Our Children's House is a specialty hospital providing comprehensive services to children from infancy through age 18 with developmental or birth disorders, traumatic injuries or severe illnesses.
Founded in 1993 and acquired by Children’s Health℠ in 2015, Our Children’s House is the only one of its kind in the region, providing transition from acute-care hospitals to home after experiencing life-changing health issues. The hospital focuses on patient stabilization, family education and maximizing the patient’s functional ability.
Inpatient programs include feeding rehabilitation and pulmonary services, while the intensive day patient programs include neurological, feeding and constraint-induced therapies.
From the moment a child enters Our Children’s House, a care coordinator and social worker are assigned to assist the family in identifying community resources for appropriate counseling as well as designing a thorough discharge plan.
Family care conferences are also held within the first week after admission and every two weeks thereafter. Every child is unique, as is every child’s treatment. The approach is to create individualized care plans for each patient with short- and long-term, clinically based goals and success markers.
Our Children’s House offers unique feeding programs aimed at helping children overcome physical and behavioral problems that manifest themselves at mealtime.
An interdisciplinary approach is utilized and includes a speech-language pathologist, occupational therapist, psychologist and registered dietitian.
A dedicated team educates families on how to support their child requiring short- or long-term mechanical ventilation with a tracheotomy, working to make the transition to home seamless.
A multi-disciplinary rehab team provides care and therapy to assist children who have experienced a major life-changing event or diagnosis. The goal is to restore function and educate the family as they prepare to return home.
