Pediatric Habilitation and Long-Term Care
Children’s Habilitation Center provides critical care for infants and children with complex medical needs. Our highly trained staff has been recognized throughout the state of Illinois and includeRespiratory Therapists, Trach Wound Nurses, Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), Physical Therapists, Certified Occupational Therapist Assistants, a Registered Dietitian, and a Psychologist.
As part of our long-term pediatric care, CHC also provides onsite educational services to our children, with Doris Zollar playing an instrumental role in the creation of the educational program. The program is certified by the Illinois State Board of Education and has accreditation by the National Association of Special Education Teachers. Even our youngest children, those under the age of 3 years old, receive educational services in our early childhood development programs.
CHC is the largest member of the national Pediatric Complex Care Association in the United States to provide ventilator care, and continues setting the highest standards and providing the best cost-to-benefit holistic care of children with complex medical needs requiring ventilation than any other facility in the country.
We operate our pediatric habilitation and critical care under three guiding principals- compassion, innovation, and holistic care.
