Our Approach to Treatment


At HealthBridge our comprehensive treatments plans are designed to treat the whole child, not just the ailment or injury. We have a large referral base and if a patient requires a unique level of care, we are equipped to seek out that care. The entire care team addresses the goals of each child prior to and immediately upon admission. We then revisit the patient status on a weekly basis.

Because of our size and unique care setting, parents know their child’s coordinated care team and have a high level of access to them. Our highly-skilled and emphatic staff has the time to focus on the individual child’s needs as well as the needs of the family.

At HealthBridge Children’s Hospital, parents are considered part of the caregiving team and recovery process. We provide ongoing support, respite, education and teach them how to handle complicated treatment plans and recognize potential problems at the earliest stage. One of our goals is for parents and caregivers to feel confident and competent in caring for their child’s unique needs outside of a hospital setting.
