Pediatric and Perinatal Services
In partnership with UR Medicine’s Golisano Children’s Hospital, our pediatric program provides comprehensive, preventive, post-acute, rehabilitative, and complex care for medically frail infants and children. Our team of experienced pediatric clinicians are dedicated to providing high-quality and compassionate care to your little one.
Arranging for Pediatric Home Care Services
- If your child is scheduled for surgery, ask your child’s doctor before being admitted to request home care from UR Medicine Home Care.
- If your child is admitted to the hospital unexpectedly, ask one of the UR Medicine Home Care Intake Specialists to review your child’s needs before being discharged. All of our specialists are registered nurses experienced in planning for home care needs.
- Call us directly at 1-800-253-4439.
Arranging for Perinatal Home Care Services
The UR Medicine Home Care Perinatal program serves prenatal, high-risk obstetric patients with diagnoses, including pre-eclampsia, hyperemesis gravidarum, and gestational diabetes; and ante-partum patients with wound-related diagnoses. These patients can remain on services for up to two months post-partum, and any remaining health issues after that time would be transferred to the pediatric team.
What Happens Next
A UR Medicine Home Care case manager (a nurse, physical therapist, or speech therapist) will be assigned to coordinate your child’s care at home. Working closely with your physician, your child’s case manager will oversee a complete and individualized home care plan for you.
