The Pediatric Enhanced Care Program
The goal of the Pediatric Enhanced Care Program is to
improve the quality of care for children with complex chronic conditions and
their families. These children have multiple health care providers involved in
their care, are dependent on medical technology to live, and are frequently
hospitalized. Dr. Savithri Nageswaran MD, MPH, is the Medical Director of the
Pediatric Enhanced Care Program.

Declan Donoghue Collaborative Care Program
The Declan Donoghue Collaborative Care Program, started in
2011, is an innovative program at Brenner Children’s Hospital designed to
reduce mortality and morbidity in children who have undiagnosed complex
conditions or complex medical conditions with an unresolved clinical problem.
This is achieved by bringing together multiple subspecialists to share
information and ideas for evaluation and treatment. This program was developed
to honor the life of Declan Donoghue and to bring attention to the difficulty
of diagnosing unexplained medical ailments. Please contact Ms. Angel Mitchell,
RN, MSN, CPN, at 336-713-2226 or firstname.lastname@example.org for information about
