Providence Kids Care

We understand that any serious or debilitating illness is stressful for the family but even more so when the health of a child is involved. Providence Kids Care provides you and your family with comprehensive pediatric palliative care and hospice services specifically tailored to deal with circumstances involving a child or young adult. Our palliative care offers comfort and support earlier in the course of a child’s illness. Hospice brings you and your family high-quality care when a cure is not possible.

Our palliative care services can help your child cope with temporary pain that is a part of a treatment process, as well as assist children and their families to keep pain from interfering with quality of life as they near the end of their journey. We are committed to serve you and your family with personalized care planning, professional services and caring relationships, offering everything we can to manage pain and symptoms.

Our hospice services provides comforting and empowering support to children and their and families coping with end-of-life care, extending from medical and care support to grief counseling and bereavement services. We are committed to communicating with you every step of the way so that you are central in the decision-making process and provide compassionate care to strengthen relationships, meaning and hope.

All of our care is provided wherever our patients and their families need us – in hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, and in the patient's own home.
