Pediatric Specialty Care can now offer world-class healthcare in the heart of Philadelphia

Our goal is to enable children with special needs to realize their fullest potential in a nurturing and supportive environment, whether that means transitioning a child back to their family’s home or celebrating a small, yet miraculous achievement.

Helping children

Pediatric Specialty Care’s vision is to uphold the highest quality of care while always mindful that the children we serve are part of a family. We’re committed to the development of unique programs to meet the needs of the ever-changing population of children who are medically fragile.

Helping families

We understand the difficult decision that a family faces when searching for a residential program that will meet ALL of their child’s needs. We also know that every child and his or her family are special and that their circumstances are unique.

With that in mind, our compassionate staff will coordinate every aspect of an admission with particular attention to your needs.

Our admission process culminates in a plan that provides exceptional personal care for individuals and families, as well as full support to the discharging facilities.
