KOSAIR CHARITIES PEDIATRIC CONVALESCENT CENTER
One Family's Story... Meet Travis
The Kosair Charities Pediatric Convalescent Center (KCPCC) is a home away from home for medically fragile children, ages birth to 21. Our skilled nursing facility provides short-term, long-term and respite care for children with severe developmental and/or physical disabilities, as well as ventilator dependency.
Each child receives individualized care from an experienced team of doctors, nurses and therapists. But our care goes well beyond just meeting the medical needs of each child. On a daily basis, the children who live at the Kosair Charities Pediatric Convalescent Center are given educational opportunities at community schools and in our on-site school room. Plus, children enjoy fun activities such as swimming, creating art projects, even learning ballet.
Families also play a vital role in the development of their children. From our open visitation policy to total involvement in the child’s treatment program, we become an extended part of each of the children’s family.
Two additional KCPCC residential cottages, Rainforest Trail and Zephyr Cove, opened in the Fall of 2010 and have added 30 new skilled nursing beds for all levels of care, increasing our capacity from 46 to 76 children. The Home is currently receiving referrals from hospitals and other organizations in the community. For more information or to make a referral, please contact the Medical Services Coordinator at the Kosair Charities Pediatric Convalescent Center at 502.596.1127.
We also provide respite care for families who have medically fragile children at home. Respite provides 24-hour care in our facility for up to 14 days per visit. Families are welcome to schedule multiple visits per year. Respite care can be scheduled a year in advance in order for families to plan for their break. We currently have 35 families participating in our respite program.
We are currently taking reservations for 2013 for respite care. Please call us at 502.596.1127 with any questions or to make a reservation.
