Complex Coordination of Care Program
We understand that scheduling multiple medical procedures for your child can be stressful. Our Complex Coordination of Care Program works with you to combine procedures so that your child receives needed care with as little anesthetic exposure as possible. For example, a child who is scheduled for a tonsillectomy or MRI and then minor surgery two weeks later may be able merge the two visits into one.
Uniting for better care
Through personalized intervention, our Complex Coordination of Care Program team strives to minimize your stress.
Jill Kilkelly, M.D., assistant professor of Clinical Anesthesiology, created the Complex Coordination of Care program in 2011. Hospital faculty and staff knew some patients were coming in for more than one procedure, such as an MRI and a minor surgery, often within the same month. This was frequently discovered too late to combine care in a way that made sense for both the providers and families.
We can't do it alone
You can help us coordinate procedures by letting us know if your child is scheduled for future visits. Our team works with other departments to personalize a schedule for your visit.
