St. Mary's Home Care

A Special Needs Certified Home Health Agency Caring for Children and Young Adults with Medical Complexity

Home is the very best place to heal and thrive

At St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children, we do all we can to make living at home possible for children and young adults with disabilities and medically complex conditions.
Our goal is to provide extraordinary care and support services to help patients regain independence and achieve a better quality of life at home—with the family who loves them.

A Pioneer in Pediatric Home Healthcare

When specialized care is needed at home, St. Mary’s Home Care, a special needs certified home health agency (CHHA), is the source families trust—and with good reason: We
pioneered the first long-term pediatric home healthcare program in New York over 30 years ago.

Today, we remain the largest and most comprehensive provider of services to children with special healthcare needs, delivering care into the homes of thousands of patients who require specialized medical, educational and rehabilitative care. St. Mary’s Home Care provides short-term skilled care for patients from newborn to 44 years of age.

Compassionate, Family-Centered Care

At St. Mary’s home care, we know the vital role loved ones play in a patient’s recovery—and our family-centered team approach makes the most of it. Our compassionate team of clinicians works closely with discharge planners and family members to ensure a smooth transition home. Once there, we coordinate care with the patient’s physician and other health professionals—as well as the family—to make the most of their treatment and minimize the family’s fears and concerns.
