The medical day care program at St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children offers children and young adults with cognitive and physical disabilities the therapeutic and rehabilitative services they need—and the opportunities to make friends we all deserve.
Located on the park-like grounds of our flagship facility in Bayside, Queens, our medical day care program is open to children age six to 18 years old and adults up to age 30. Each group participates in a variety of supervised activities designed to promote their skills, confidence, and independence in a nurturing and fun environment—one where family members are welcomed and encouraged to play a critical role in their loved one’s success. Round-trip transportation is available to all participants.
Medical Day Care Focused on Meeting Individual Goals
Our medical day care program is designed to meet each participant’s therapeutic goals and may include everything from physical, occupational and speech therapy to diabetes and weight management, activities of daily living (ADL) education and transition planning. Our staff, which always features an on-site registered nurse, works to help participants develop to their fullest potential.
Program for School-Aged Kids
Available after school and on weekends, children with special needs benefit from rehabilitation services (OT, PT and speech-language pathology), homework assistance, supervised indoor and outdoor play, field trips, a nutritious meal—and fun with their friends.
Program for Young Adults
Offered weekdays and on weekends from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., this innovative program for children and adults up to age 30 with special needs provides therapeutic and psychosocial activities, as well as occupational skill building and peer counseling to help each participant build new skills and enhance existing ones.
