Pediatric Care

Children have special needs and so do their families. When a serious illness strikes at a young age, our Pediatric Care health professionals surround the child and the family with sensitive, compassionate care and the special expertise required for ones so young. We partner with many agencies in the community to bring together the resources to support both children and their families.

Treasure Coast Hospice Pediatric Care

Children facing a serious illness have unique needs. Treasure Coast Hospice’s Pediatric Care focuses on the unique needs of children, teens and their families through its specialized program, Little Treasures.

The goal of this program is to improve the quality of life for children and teens with serious illness by supporting the entire family with palliative and hospice care.  Surrounding families with individualized care and support, the Little Treasures Care Team addresses medical, psychosocial and spiritual concerns by providing intensive pain and symptom management along with counseling, guidance and education.






Pediatric Care Team

The Little Treasures care team is made up of a family physician, a pediatric nurse and social worker, a certified music therapist, chaplain and volunteers. Trained to work with pediatric patients, our specialized team helps families overcome the challenges of caring for a child with a serious illness. Helping families enjoy quality time together creates special moments and memories that bring comfort and healing.
