Foundation Grant Helps Pediatric
Patients andTheir Families
New London Hospital (NLH) recently received a generous foundation
grant to purchase pediatric counseling resources. The foundation donors,
who wish to remain anonymous, wanted
to support the hospital’s pediatric
providers in both New London and
Newport by allowing them to offer
children and young adults and their
families quality care that emphasizes
prevention and a healthy lifestyle. The
team provides support and guidance
for families using a multi-disciplinary,
holistic approach to care.
It is increasingly acknowledged that pediatric practice includes assisting
with not only the physical but also the developmental and behavioral
needs of children and families. With changes in the constitution of the
traditional” family, a growing number of children with chronic illness
and sensory issues, and the increasing role of primary care providers
as an entry into mental and behavioral health care, there are a wide range
of challenges and opportunities for pediatric care providers in meeting the
needs of their patients.
