Additional Medical Care

See how we ensure all our patients get the care they need when they’re being treated at Jackson Health System.

Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care Program

For children with complex medical problems who cannot attend regular school or daycare, Jackson offers the only Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care (PPEC) program in South Florida directly related to a hospital. Children’s healing and recovery continues in a safe, home-like environment, while parents or caretakers work or attend school. This daytime program is available for families with children up to 21 years old with medically complex problems. Available PPEC care:
  • Nursing care
  • Respiratory treatments
  • Occupational, speech, and physical therapy
  • Schooling appropriate for their age

Pediatric Transport to Holtz Children’s Hospital

If a critically ill child needs to be treated in our Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), our partners are encouraged to request domestic or international emergency to Holtz Children’s.

Our NICU/PICU Transport Team, which includes a critical care respiratory therapist, a pediatric/neonatal intensive care physician, and a critical care RN or ARNP, is available 24/7. We offer quick and efficient transport of patients requiring a higher level of pediatric emergency care. Our team is committed to fast dispatch times and clear and easy communication with our partners at the referring facilities.

When arranging for a patient’s transport, our communications specialist will ask for the following information:
  • Patient’s Name
  • Age and Weight
  • Type and Extent of Illness or Injury
  • Vital Signs
  • Treatment Received
  • Referral Physician’s Name and Contact Information

Safe Sleep Program

Jackson Health System is the safest place in South Florida to welcome your new baby, and that includes what happens after the baby is born.

The Women’s Hospital at Jackson Memorial has earned a Gold Certified Safe Sleep Champion designation from the Cribs for Kids® National Safe Sleep Hospital program. This highest-level certification means staff go above and beyond in a pursuit to reduce sleep-related deaths by promoting practices and education for infant sleep safety.
