Children's Health Homes

Do you need help managing your child’s health care needs?

At The Summit Center, we know that caring for a child with chronic physical, mental or behavioral health conditions can be complicated and sometimes exhausting. With Children’s Health Homes, we can help. We provide you with a care manager – the extra support you need – to help your child’s caregivers and providers communicate with each other.

Enrolling in a Health Home is free for eligible children! Summit Care Managers ensure your child has access to needed services and supports to stay healthy, out of the emergency room, and out of the hospital, including:

  • Assessing health needs and working with you on meeting goals
  • Coordinating doctor appointments, transportation, prescription refills
  • 24/7 availability for information and emergency consultation services
  • Coordinating transition plans between providers
  • Individual and Family Support
  • Referral to Community and Social Support Services
