About Our Service
We recognize how challenging life can be for you when your child has a complex health situation and needs ongoing medical care, especially if you’re traveling long distances to receive that care. The Peter and Joan Secchia CarePartners Program was established to help families with children who have complex health situations as they navigate their way through the health care system.
If your child sees three or more specialty providers at or affiliated with Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, we can help.
• Guidance and support to understand medical information and treatment plans
• Communication support between you and members of your health care team
• Coordination of referrals, medical appointments, procedures and tests
• Referrals to support services including social work, pastoral care, financial counseling and community resources
Patient and Family Lounge
Available Monday to Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and by appointment, the lounge serves as a place to rest between appointments or testing.
