REALIZING THE DREAM
Longer term in-house care for medically fragile children is needed
Foundation for Positively Kids, as a non-profit, has been in operation since 1999 serving almost 400 medically fragile children a day as out-patients. Positively Kids delivers high quality, integrated behavioral and primary care services to Southern Nevada children with an emphasis on providing quality of life for medically fragile, medically dependent, and/or developmentally delayed children age birth to 18 and their families.
Positively Kids services more than 10,000 children each year through their care coordination programs, such as High Risk Newborn Clinic, Early Intervention, Medical Daycare, Skilled Respite, Home Health, Health Coach and new programs to deal with the Opioid Crisis in Children.
We want to Do More!
Plans to Expand Services for Medically Fragile Children, By Constructing a “For Profit” Skilled Pediatric Facility.
The Need is Critical
Plans are in place to construct and operate a “Center for Special Needs Children” at 6070 West Post Road on a vacant 1.8 approved site. There is not a skilled pediatric facility in Nevada. Children are either cared for at home, entered into a senior care facility or shipped out of state.
