Admissions

Elizabeth Seton Children’s Center

At Elizabeth Seton Children’s Center, excellence in care starts upon admission. Our children come to us from hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, social services agencies, physicians and directly from living with their families in the community. We begin by asking for pertinent information about your child’s needs to ensure that our programs and services will provide the best possible match. As part of getting to know your child we ask for information including, but not limited to:

 

 

    • A current history and physical exam
    • Clinical notes from the most recent hospitalization or physicians’ visits
    • Physical/occupational/ speech theraphy notes from the last 30 days (if applicable)
    • Current medication list
    • Current treatment orders
    • Current labs/diagnostics
    • Current dit Immunization records
    • Insurance information
    • PRI/Screen
    • Current plan of care for all disciplines

 

 

We ask that our prospective parents and guardians take a tour of the Center to see us at work, meet the teams and experience the quality of services we provide.
