Medical Care & Monitoring

Every child staying at Providence House receives a well-child exam in our on-site Pediatric Clinic. Children with minor medical needs are served in our Pediatric Crisis Nursery and are provided with additional medical monitoring and care.

Medical Care & Monitoring

Medical Support and Monitoring
Providence House provides pediatric medical triage assessment services when children first arrive on our campus. Within five business days of their admission to Providence House, each child also receives a complete well-child exam in our Pediatric Clinic, which comes complete with all the equipment used in a traditional hospital pediatric clinic. Providence House staff schedule specialty off-site appointments, sick-child visits, or emergency visits as needed. When it is possible and safe, the child’s parents/guardians are encouraged to participate in any special medical appointments. When this is not possible or safe, Providence House staff transport children to medical appointments.

Elisabeth’s House: The Prentiss Pediatric Crisis Nursery
Children who have minor medical conditions that do not require inpatient hospital services stay in our Pediatric Crisis Nursery. We have contracted with experienced pediatric medical providers from MetroHealth and the Visiting Nurses Association for medical oversight and treatment for these children.

Family Medical Skills Training

Families of children staying in our Pediatric Crisis Nursery also benefit from medical skills training to ensure the family can effectively manage their child’s medical needs upon discharge. This training is provided by our contracted pediatric medical professionals.
