Our high-tech home care program was developed so that your child can spend more time at home. Our home care patients are closely monitored and scheduled for medical evaluations in the Cystic Fibrosis clinic.
Our new transition clinic has an adult pulmonary Cystic Fibrosis doctor attend the pediatric Cystic Fibrosis clinic approximately twice a month. The adolescent pediatric patient meets this doctor who they will eventually transition their care to once they enter adulthood, between ages 18-21 years. These visits allow the patient and parents to become familiar with the doctor, answer any questions they may have and to address concerns.
