The Children’s Health Program provides interdisciplinary health services to children, youth, and their families throughout the Maritimes. We also provide some tertiary (specialized) services to the Atlantic region.
Although our main focus is tertiary care, the Program also provides primary and secondary care services including prevention and promotion activities. In addition to the Regional Poison Centre, there is also a significant focus in promoting healthy eating and healthy living activities for children, youth, families and health professionals.
Care and services are provided on an inpatient and outpatient basis, through traveling (outreach) clinics and the use of telehealth. In addition, the Air Medical Transport Team provides care for critically ill newborns, children, youth and pregnant women during air medical transport to the IWK.
