Life can be challenging for a family 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.
Does your child see three or more specialty providers at or affiliated with Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital?
As part of the Secchia CarePartners program you will have a nurse care coordinator assigned to your family who will be dedicated to you and your care team. This person will be an advocate, who can help with logistics, scheduling, support and information, so you can focus more on your child and family.
In partnering with you, we provide:
Available Monday to Friday, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and by appointment after hours, the lounge serves as a place to rest between appointments or testing.
The lounge is a shared space to be used in a safe, friendly and respectful manner. Children must be attended by an adult.
As children grow and family needs change, Secchia CarePartners support may no longer be necessary. If your child seems ready to graduate from the program, we will help in the transition planning.
You can help us treat more kids and families in your community.
