Our Story is the story of hundreds of children and families able to live together when once they might not have.
To share life’s simple joys.
To get a good night’s sleep.
To celebrate holidays and anniversaries at home.
To believe in a better future.
Continuum Pediatric Nursing Services evolved from a company that staffed nursing personnel in various healthcare settings, including hospitals and nursing homes. After developing a special bond with a baby in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, some of Continuum’s nurses were asked to help transition this baby home to her family. From this experience, Continuum began advocating for families, expanding the possibilities of home care for children who would have previously been limited to acute or long-term care as their only options. By caring for the first child in Northern Virginia to come home from the hospital on a ventilator, Continuum ultimately gained the expertise necessary to change the lives of hundreds of families throughout the regions we serve.
Today, over twenty five years later, Continuum is the preeminent provider of pediatric home care in Hickory and Charlotte North Carolina, greater Charleston South Carolina, the Virginia and Maryland Washington D.C. suburbs, Baltimore, Chicago, Pittsburgh, and the Norfolk/Hampton Roads area; having helped countless families maximize their health care benefits as well as maintain their home life with an ill child. In doing so, children who otherwise would have perhaps been institutionalized have thrived in the comfort of their own homes surrounded by the love and support of their families. We are proud to be the most trusted name in home care for this special patient population.
Our patients’ diagnoses range from extreme prematurity to genetic illnesses to various medical anomalies. Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), persistent pulmonary hypertension, apnea, impaired suck/swallow, short bowel syndrome, malabsorption, reactive airway disease, muscular dystrophy, and mitochondrial disease are among some of the specific issues Continuum’s patients face. These medically fragile children are dependent upon high technology medical support including feeding tubes, tracheostomies, and mechanical ventilation.
To maintain the highest quality of care, Continuum leads the home care industry in offering training opportunities to ensure our clinical staff is always knowledgeable of progressive, best practices. Most recently we are excited that these experiences have led to the addition of Speech-Language Pathology and Behavioral Health services in many of our locations!
