Pediatric Services Overview
Exceptional care for your exceptional child
Caring for a child with complex medical needs is an enormous responsibility. It’s not uncommon for parents to be overwhelmed, exhausted, and sometimes downright frightened. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
At BAYADA Pediatrics, we understand what it’s like to care for medically-fragile children at home. In fact, we’ve been doing it since 1980. But more importantly, we know how to care for them so well that we have set the national standard for pediatric home health care.
It’s our goal to help and support you every step of the way, from the start of care and for as long as we’re with your family. Our skilled and experienced pediatric nurses are committed to keeping your family together by providing safe, exceptional care for your child in the comfort of your home. That’s our promise to you, your child, and your family.

A customized plan of care for your one-of-a-kind child
No two children are alike, so no one-size-fits-all plan of care is appropriate for your child. That’s why our clinical managers - who are also registered nurses - work closely with you, your child’s physicians, and other care team members to develop a plan that is customized to your child’s unique needs, situation, and goals.
Prior to starting care, a BAYADA Pediatrics Clinical Manager meets with you to perform a complimentary assessment and answer any questions you may have. While we focus on developing a plan of care that supports the best outcome for your child, we also recognize how important it is to always consider your concerns, home setting, and preferences.
The BAYADA care team — which may include nurses and home health aides — is selected to best-match your child’s needs. Our clinical manager is responsible for ensuring that all of your child’s caregivers are thoroughly acclimated to your home and prepared to deliver exceptional, safe care.
Regular, ongoing supervisory visits by the clinical manager further ensure that your child’s needs are continually being met, and adjustments in care can be made as necessary.

24-hour clinical support

Unmatched education and training
BAYADA is unmatched in our commitment to providing ongoing education and training to our pediatric care team members. Through one-on-one time spent with an experienced nurse, mentoring, hands-on lab demonstration, in-service programs, and scholarships for professional development, our caregivers continue to expand and improve the clinical skills they bring to their clients.
Transitional Care Program
Welcome home! Paving the way for a smooth transition
When a child is transitioning from hospital to home, it’s an exciting, yet anxious time for many parents. To prepare, our transitional care manager will visit with you in the hospital to discuss everything that will be done to ensure your child has a smooth transition to home. We will work in partnership with the hospital team to ensure all equipment, medications, instructions, and care requirements are arranged.
We invite you to ask as many questions as you have and to let us know your specific concerns and preferences. If it’s important to you, it’s important to us.
How to Pay
Paying for services
Good news: our pediatric services are typically covered by a variety of public and private insurances. We are preferred providers for most private and group health insurance plans, and are licensed to provide Medicaid services – including Managed Medicaid and other government programs – in most states. Private pay is also accepted.
We will contact your medical insurance company to determine your home care benefit, handle all of the requested paperwork, and bill the insurance company directly.
