Pediatric Supportive Care

(309) 624-9631

Pediatric Supportive Care is a new program at Children’s Hospital.  It is designed to support families dealing with chronic and life-limiting illnesses. The goal of this program is to provide medical consultation for symptom management, counseling services for support with coping and spiritual support throughout the course of illness.

At this time, referrals to the program are made by the health professional when a child’s illness meets certain criteria and he or she is hospitalized. For more information on this program, please call us.
