THE PATCHES VILLAGE
“Our Field of Dreams”
Historically medically fragile children access more care than any other singular group of children. Often their care is fragmented, haphazard and by event rather than planned and preventive. These children, especially those in Deep South Florida, are limited by physician availability, poor mass transit access, cultural and language barriers.
The PATCHES Village is our response to the many needs of these children and young adults. Gaps in care, lack of pediatric specialists, decreased accessibility, cultural and language barriers can be addressed in a cost effective, quality environment that is beneficial not only to the children and young adults being served, but also the community, acute care settings, physicians and the many health care education programs training medical personnel in Miami Dade County.
The PATCHES Village would consist of the following components at completion with priority given to the most critical and most utilized components being completed first:
- PPEC (prescribed pediatric extended care or medical day care)
- Pediatric Specialty Clinics
- Pediatric Nursing Home
- Young Adult Day Care with Skilled Nursing
- Durable Medical Equipment
- Pediatric Home Health
- Medical Group Home
- Medical Charter School
