Children with Special Health Care Needs
A public health nurse is available to meet with families of children with special health care needs in their homes or at the Health Department. Referrals can be initiated by physicians, hospitals, therapists, social workers and programs such as WIC. Families can also contact the Health Department directly to request services.
The public health nurse will assess the infant/child and provide resources, referrals or case management. This service is for infants who were born prematurely, high risk infants/children, children with genetic disorders, chronic illness, growth and development concerns or families in need of resources or support.
