A Place Your Child Can Comfortably Call HOME

At Seven Hills, we understand that the decision to place a child in long-term care is very difficult. Families often make the decision when 24-hour care in the home becomes too great and requires sophisticated, skilled nursing. Seven Hills Pediatric Center can make that decision easier. We are here to offer your child a home—one that welcomes you and your family as members of our family in a community that offers experiences you never thought possible.

Children enrolled in long-term care at Seven Hills Pediatric Center receive all the necessary medical, nursing, therapy, and leisure services to enhance their quality of life. Many residents come to us with a history of congenital birth defects, past infections, or trauma. Cognitively, residents are under the age of 12 months and are non-ambulatory. The Medical Review Team (MRT) of the Department of Public Health approves all admissions.

Children attend an on-site, accredited Department of Education special needs school during the day. The staff of educators, all of whom specialize in the education of children with developmental disabilities, works closely with each child’s individual school system to develop a plan to assist each child in reaching his or her greatest potential. Community involvement, assistive technology and community field trips are also an integral part of each child’s daily life.
