PediPec, a pediatric day care center for children with chronic medical conditions, has announced the opening of a new facility at 1402 Royal Palm Beach Blvd. in Royal Palm Beach. This new location joins PediPec’s existing centers in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.
PediPec specializes in providing a complete range of services for children up to age 20 with such medical conditions as prematurity, neurologic disorders such as cerebral palsy, seizures, respiratory conditions and feeding disorders, as well as services for those who are dependent on any medical equipment. The new center will offer physical, occupational, respiratory and speech therapies, along with full nursing care.
Grizzy Miller, RN, president of PediPec, prides herself on helping each child achieve their maximum potential for growth and happiness. “These are my precious children,” she said. “Our slogan is ‘we love our kids.’ But for us, it’s not just a slogan — it’s the philosophy that every one of our staff lives by.”
Many PediPec staff member volunteer in area hospitals. The company program, called PediSmiles, has been up and running for many years and has staff members dressing up in various costumes to bring joy to children undergoing long term hospitalization.
“We provide our parents tremendous peace of mind, because they see in their children the results of our exceptionally skilled staff along with their true caring for the needs of each child,” said Janet Horn, administrator of PediPec. “And that’s what we’ve brought to Royal Palm Beach.”
PediPec has a sister company, PediStat, which rents medical equipment to families who care for children at home with long-term medical needs.
