Welcome to Pediatric Specialty Care

The moment you enter Pediatric Specialty Care you’ll discover a cheerful, home-like environment where state-of-the-art technology combines with stimulating and age-appropriate accommodations. We provide exceptional care for children with medically fragile conditions at our six locations across Pennsylvania, including Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.

Our Levels of Care

Transitional Care

The mission of Pediatric Specialty Care is to help transition medically fragile children out of a restrictive, acute care setting and encourage them to thrive in the home-like environment of PSC. Our short-term or transitional care services are specifically designed to meet these goals. Transitional care is valuable for:

  • Relieving children from acute care settings for a short time prior to moving home
  • Giving families time to prepare for their children at home
  • Supporting families as they are trained in how to care for their child at home
  • Providing a respite to families that provide in-home care

Short Term Care

Pediatric Specialty Care takes pride in our ability to help children transition from PSC to their homes. Our transition teams of pediatric care specialists work with each family to help them prepare for in-home care.

Long Term Care

Our Pediatric Specialty Care communities are designed to provide a customized and constant comprehensive pediatric care setting that allows children to continually grow and stay active. In cases where home care is not an option, Pediatric Specialty Care creates an environment with engaging events, daily activities, and the continued pediatric care as needed.
