Community Resources Provider Resources
Today, more than 90% of children with special health care needs survive into adulthood due to advances in medical care and the early intervention strategies provided by pediatric providers. In fact, adult patients with chronic conditions of childhood origin are now outnumbering pediatric patients among some subgroups. Thus, there is an urgent need to provide the same high-quality care for this target population in the adult health care system.
There are many programs available to help patients, families and providers access resources on a variety of topics. Please contact 211 (in the Rochester area) or The Complex Care Center at ComplexCareCenter@urmc.rochester.edu to request current information on any of these resources.
