Mission Statement

For children from birth to age 21 with complex medical conditions ranging from injury or illness, Ranken Jordan bridges the gap between traditional hospital treatment and home.

Description

At the center of every team is the family. Based on each child’s unique needs, we surround the family with physicians, physiatrists, therapists, nurse practitioners, social workers, dietitians and even a psychiatrist to build the bridge home.

No matter how challenged, a kid is still a kid. Our Care Beyond the Bedside model activates the healing power of children’s natural instinct to play, grow, learn and interact with others.

To continue care for their kids after they are discharged, families often need to learn the same specialized skills that rival those of trained medical professionals. In addition to offering world-class care, Ranken Jordan gives families the practical and emotional support they need to thrive.

Children’s success at home is the goal of our care from the first day. We offer help finding resources for everything from education to transportation. Our community and outpatient programs also provide ongoing care and support for over 750 families a year.
