First Kid’s PPEC in Lauderhill

Our medical staff at Kid’s PPEC provides daily care to children with medically complex conditions who require a higher level of care than what can’t be provided in a typical pediatric primary care practice or normal daycare center..

We have the ability to provide specialized care for our patients, including treatment for respiratory, cardiac, and gastrointestinal conditions. Our staff is highly trained and experienced in the treatment of children who have these conditions. Our dedicated staff is committed to providing exceptional service to our patients and their families by making every effort possible to ensure that they receive the best physical, emotional, and psychological support.

Our Pediatric Post-Operative Extended Care centers located in Lauderhill and other areas of Florida are designed specifically for children who have complex medical conditions and require extra care. We understand that parents are busy with work, school, and other responsibilities. Our PPECs allow us to provide caretaking services as well as treatments and therapies under the supervision of our medical staff. We provide a variety of services including physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. 

PPEC: City of Lauderhill

The city of Lauderhill is located in Broward County, so if you live a little more north than Miami, this location may be right for you and your family.

At most PPEC centers, children with complex medical conditions can play and learn with other kids in a safe, nurturing environment, allowing their parents to work or attend school to provide for their families. First Kid’s PPEC offers more than just the typical healthcare provided at hospitals or doctor’s offices. We provide medical, nursing, psychosocial, developmental, educational therapies, playtime, meals, and snacks.

Along with administrative staff and your child’s physician, we have several Registered Nurses who work as a team to provide the best medical, developmental and educational care for your child every day.

Children who need skilled nursing services on a daily or weekly basis often need licensed physicians to work with them on a regular basis too. That’s why we are proud to be one of the only physician-owned and operated PPECs in the nation.

Our locations provide spacious, open areas for children to learn, play, and receive care. We take the cleanliness and comfort of our patients extremely seriously and have taken additional measures to ensure cleanliness and safety. Here are just a few of the services we provide:

Speech Therapy
