What makes us different?

Homecare at Nationwide Children’s is the only hospital-based pediatric home health agency in the central Ohio area. That means we are backed by the child care specialists and full range of services at Nationwide Children’s. Unlike other home care service providers that also treat adults, our staff is specially trained and solely dedicated to caring for children.

Children have special needs when it comes to medical care because their bodies are still growing and developing. Our staff is trained to deal with all of those needs – physical, emotion and psychological. We see more children and more children’s ailments every day than any other homecare provider in the area. This vast experience helps us recognize signs and symptoms others might miss.
