Providence Center for Medically Fragile Children is the only center of its kind in the Pacific Northwest and has been serving the community since 1945, first as an orphanage and later as a nursing center. Our staff includes physicians, nurse care managers, registered nurses, license practical nurses, certified medication aides, certified nursing assistants, therapeutic recreation aides, therapists (respiratory, physical, occupational, and speech/language), certified therapeutic recreation specialists, child life specialists, social services, chaplain and special education teachers. As appropriate for each child, the staff and volunteers offer an array of normal daily activities such as school, play, special holiday celebrations, gatherings and outings.
If you have a medically fragile child, please call us. We would like to talk with you, learn about your child, and schedule a tour for you to see the center and for us to meet you and your child.
Our dedicated staff and volunteers provide a loving, enriching environment for every youngster. The center serves as an extension of the child's family, complete with school-age friends who play, laugh and cuddle with children.
