Who We Are

Central Florida's Premier Provider of Pediatric Home Health Care and Ancillary Services

 

Who We Are - ChildrenFirst

ChildrenFirst  Health Care System was founded in 1994 because we were deeply moved by the challenges facing medically fragile infants and children and their families. We understood that caring for medically fragile children is not a business or a career or a job. It is a calling, a summons to the heart and mind to make a difference in the lives of children. We saw an opportunity to improve each child’s quality of life by providing a full spectrum of home health care and center based services.

As central Florida’s most comprehensive children’s home care and ancillary services provider, we offer unmatched reliability and expertise. We are Central Florida’s only one-stop provider for all of your pediatric home care and ancillary needs, including pediatric nursing and in-home therapies, pediatric medical equipment, supplies and enteral nutrition, pediatric medication, outpatient pediatric physical, occupational, and speech therapies, respiratory therapy services, prescribed pediatric medical day care centers, and community residential medical group homes.
