Complex Care Program

The Arkansas Children’s Complex Care Program (formerly known as the Medical Home Program) provides compassionate, specialized care for infants and children with special health care needs.  Our dedicated team is passionate about working with medically complex patients and families!
We seek to deliver comprehensive care coordination and therapies to maximize health and wellness while striving to reduce unnecessary hospital/ER visits. Through a focus on family-centered care, our team is dedicated to providing assistance to families as they navigate our health care system, both at Arkansas Children's and in their local communities.  

Helping Children Reach Their Full Potential

Our mission is simple: provide the optimal quality of family-centered care for children with medical complexity.

We seek to ensure that every child and family will receive all necessary medical, nutritional, psychosocial, and developmental care while fostering partnerships with caregivers and community providers so children will reach their full potential.

Would Your Child Benefit from the Complex Care Program?

The following questions may assist in determining if your child would benefit from the Complex Care Program at Arkansas Children’s:

  • Would it be helpful to work with a multidisciplinary care model, including the physician, nursing, social work, nutrition, psychology and speech?
  • Do you feel confused by the information you receive from your child’s care team?
  • Do you need help negotiating the healthcare system and connecting to community resources?
  • Do you need help with the nutrition and developmental needs of your medically complex child?
  • Would coordination of available community-based care needs, such as access to appropriate therapy or home modifications, be helpful?
  • Would it help to have a written care plan to share with your child’s primary care provider?
  • Would you benefit from ongoing care coordination between visits including communication with family, primary care providers and specialists?
