Pediatric Home Service (PHS)
Since it was founded in 1990, PHS has been working to support extremely ill patients in the home environment. Managing the care of a typical Pediatric Home Service (PHS) patient can be incredibly complex. More than 80% of PHS home care nursing patients are designated high acuity, with illnesses ranging from cerebral palsy to congenital heart defects to cancers and chronic lung disease. Many of them are dependent on multiple advanced medical technologies to survive.
