WHAT IS PPEC?

 

PPEC stands for Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care. Creative PPEC offers a stimulating, social and nurturing alternative health care choice to families and children with medically-complex conditions to receive continual medical care in a non residential setting.

We offers services that meet the recipients’ physiological, developmental, nutritional, and social needs. These services provide a less restrictive, cost effective alternative to expensive hospitalization. It reduces the isolation and/or home bound programs, helping each child to achieve the highest quality of life possible.

Creative PPEC is licensed by AHCA, and meet all local, county and state regulations. We provide up to 12 hours per day of nursing care Monday to Saturday for children from birth to 21 years old.
