Ventilator Support

At Seven Hills Pediatric Center

The Highest Level of Specialized Clinical Care Delivered with Dignity

Seven Hills Pediatric Center’s Ventilator Support Program is designed to care for children and young adults who are ventilator-dependent. This program is designed for long-term, short-term, and respite stays with approval from the Department of Public Health. The medical and nursing staff at Seven Hills Pediatric Center have over 30 years of experience in this field, and are trained on the latest, state-of-the-art ventilator technology. Our rooms are equipped with inline suction, oxygen, and compressed air. The environment is quiet and peaceful as a result of the in-house monitoring system, which transmits alarms directly to the nurses caring for the resident. Residents, families, and staff participate in interdisciplinary care planning meetings, which allow the Pediatric Center to provide each resident with the finest quality of life possible.

Ventilator Support

Residents with mechanical support participate in all programs, including school, activities, and trips into the community with our Activities Department. Seven Hills Pediatric Center collaborates with pulmonologists at local hospitals including UMASS Memorial and Boston Children’s Hospital.
