Unlocking Potential. Improving Lives.

The Extended and Medical Care (EMC) Program is one of the primary services offered by Children's Care Hospital and School. We offer quality medically-based 24-hour programming for children ages birth to 21. Typically the children served in the Extended and Medical Care Program are referred by school districts and/or hospitals that do not have the ability to effectively serve the child. Therefore, the program is deemed the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) that will meet the individual child's needs.  This determination is made by the child's interdisciplinary team.

"Children's Care Hospital & School was the lifeline our family needed when we realized nothing else was working successfully for our daughter, who has Angelman Syndrome. The consistent daily structure has been essential to helping her get control of her behaviors and therefore be pleased with herself. The staff is all about our daughter and helping her to be the best she can be."
