I had to share this video! It’s so sweet, and profiles some amazing and inspirational kids, doctors, nurses, and volunteers at this incredible pediatric hospital called Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital. They focus on transitioning kids (with medically complex conditions) from the main hospitals to their homes, teaching kids how to “live” after their injuries. They teach the families how to care for the kids, even making doctor appointments and calling in prescriptions for six months after they get home.
The hospital is small, and is expanding to double in size this fall. They have to turn kids away right now, but they’ll go from a 34 bed hospital to a 60 bed hospital by early 2018. Of course, they are in desperate need of support, as many of their programs are not funded by insurance or federal money. Anything to spread the word about them will be so beneficial to the kids that gain their lives back from the work done here.
The facility, in Maryland Heights, Missouri and founded in 1941, is one of a handful of hospitals in the United States that provide rehabilitation and subacute medical treatment for children, regardless of the family’s ability to pay.
