Nexus Children’s Hospital

When it comes to your child’s or pediatric patient’s recovery from complex medical issues following an acquired or traumatic brain injury, acute illness, chronic disease, or any other life-altering event, a safe, nurturing environment providing individualized care is significant. As the leader in pediatric medical services and rehabilitation, Nexus Children’s Hospital treats children with primary medical issues who may also have secondary behavioral problems. Working with patients from infancy to age 21 who may have been unsuccessful in traditional rehabilitation environments, our flexible admissions criteria allows us to treat a wide variety of diagnoses.

At Nexus Children’s Hospital, you become part of our family as we’re mending minds.

Caring for Our Patients & Their Families

Nexus is different in that we believe children recovering from acquired and traumatic brain injuries and other illnesses deserve daily opportunities for therapy, rehabilitation, and extracurricular activities, aimed at constantly improving their skills and functionality. We also know it's imperative that parents and guardians are kept in contact with their child's physicians, and it's our promise to be available to address your questions and concerns – and celebrate the milestone moments. Nexus also equips families with the tools and knowledge to confidently continue care at home when your child's functionality is achieved and it's time to go home.

For a complimentary informational session for your child or patient at either Nexus Children's Hospital location, please call the admissions office.
