PPEC means Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care

ChildrenFirst PPECs are medical day care centers dedicated to the excellent care of medically fragile infants and children. Our centers are specifically designed to optimize the development of each child’s independence, while helping them reach their full potential. Daily care at our centers involves clinical interventions, therapy services and educational activities.

Along with you and your child’s physician, we determine your child’s specific nursing and therapeutic goals. You’ll receive a daily note describing what clinical interventions were done, what therapies (physical therapy PT, occupational therapy OT and speech and language therapy ST or SLP) were received and what developmental and educational activities occurred. Quarterly, or as often as needed, a personal conference is scheduled to discuss thoroughly your child’s progress toward all established goals.

Pediatric Medical Day Care Services

ChildrenFirst PPEC centers are open Monday through Friday from 6:00 AM to 7:00 PM. We welcome all children from newborn to age 21 and our uniquely designed physical environments promote developmentally appropriate activities for each age group and meet individual needs. Our staff of quality professionals includes experienced RN’s, LPN’s, Physical Therapists (PT), Speech Therapists (ST or SLP) and Occupational Therapists (OT) and certified preschool teachers. Medically fragile infants and children receive a wide range of physician prescribed clinical interventions including Apnea monitoring, oxygen administration, tracheostomy care, ventilator management, g-tube feedings, medication administration and nutritional management and formula administration.

PPEC is covered by Medicaid, Medicaid HMO’s, CMS Network and some commercial insurances. Our knowledgeable staff will handle all of the paperwork requirements and process your child’s admission, stress free for you and your family.
