Nurse and Patient

The specialty hospital program (located in our Fisher-Coon Unit) is dedicated to providing health care services to children requiring more intensive medical interventions and nursing cares. Again each child's program is individualized and implemented by the child's primary physician. Care in this unique environment is designed to assist each child in reaching their fullest potential in recovery, rehabilitation, and health care maintenance. Stays in this program are typically short-term to further stabilize a child and prepare them to transition to a less restrictive environment. Some children do require more long term stays on this unit due to their complex medical needs. Inpatient rehabilitation is provided to children following an accident or serious illness under the direction of a physiatrist and includes intensive, customized therapy and round-the-clock nursing. The team includes a nurse, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech-language pathologist, dietitian, psychologist, social worker, care technician, and certified nursing assistants. Families are heavily involved in the treatment and discharge planning. 

Upon discharge, Children's Care Hospital & School can provide Outpatient Services and/or Outreach Services to support the child's successful transition to a lesser restrictive environment.

The specialty hospital program provides intensive, customized therapy and round-the-clock nursing services to children following an accident, illness, or surgery. The inpatient rehabilitation team is directed by a pediatric physiatrist--a specialist in rehabilitative and physical medicine. The team includes a nurse, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech-language pathologist, dietitian, psychologist, social worker, care technician, and certified nursing assistants. Children who are served in the inpatient rehabilitation program in Sioux Falls may have an opportunity to participate in music therapy sessions or group events that involve movement, interaction, and family support. Families are heavily involved in the treatment planning.
"I was grateful for the chance to volunteer at Children's Care while I was in college to gain a better understanding of the needs of children with special needs, as well as those of their families. This was a great opportunity!"
