Pediatric Medical Home

Sanford Children’s Medical Home program in Fargo is designed to make coordinating care for a child with special health needs easier and simpler. The program keeps track of all care, specialists, therapists and preferences in one up-to-date care plan. Copies of the plan are available to you and others involved in your child’s care. Besides ensuring consistency, the care plan means you no longer have to keep repeating your child’s story. Pediatric Medical Home allows each provider to know at a glance where they fit in your child’s complete picture of care at all times. As your child transitions into their teens and adult years, Sanford’s Medical Home program can continue to help coordinate their care.

All are important and each has a role, but who focuses on the health and well-being of your whole child?
