The Wonder Center, a medical day treatment program of Children’s Hospital of Greenville Health System (GHS), for medically fragile children. It provides a stimulating environment to enhance all aspects of development while meeting the health needs of the child. The center is staffed by Pediatric Nurses and a Child Development Specialist who provide extraordinary care and activities for the children.
Children may attend from ages 4 weeks until 6 years as long as their medical condition warrants the need for nursing care. While many children of working parents attend the center, the program also is readily available for parents needing respite care.
The Wonder Center is under contract with the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, which provides care for children through the Medicaid Medically Complex Children’s Waiver. Anyone may recommend a child for admission, but orders from a primary care (“regular”) doctor must be included for care to be provided.
