Nexus Children's Hospital transitions all types of patients through the care they need, acting as the bridge between the acute hospital and home.
Because the recovery journey is different for all children, our experienced medical and allied health professionals work as a cohesive team to develop customized treatment plans that evolve as our young patients progress. Complete with board-certified physicians, nurses, neuropsychiatrists, behavioral psychologists, therapists, case managers, and other medical staff, your child’s team is unlike what is offered at any other hospital. Striving to help your child heal and recover, our medical team meets weekly, ensuring the course of treatment is adjusted based upon his or her ever-changing needs.
A hallmark of care at any Nexus facility is our multidisciplinary team. Coordinating services to provide the most effective treatment program for each patient, our team utilizes evidence-based assessment measures.
