Tampa Bay Newswire - May 7, 2021
SARASOTA, Fla. – Banyan Pediatric Care Centers, the leading provider of Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care (PPEC) services, is now open at 3251 17th Street, Ste. 200 in Sarasota.
Banyan provides skilled nursing for medically fragile and medically complex children ages birth to 21 in a childcare setting.
“Banyan prides itself on being deeply rooted in the communities we serve, and we’re excited to be the premier resource for PPEC services in the Sarasota and Manatee county area,” said Jason Moxley, President of Banyan Pediatric. “This expansion to a second location ensures access to services that are not only critical to a child’s development, but also provide support for families who often struggle with the unique and complex medical needs of their children. Banyan centers allow parents and caregivers the freedom to pursue their careers and tackle day-to-day responsibilities knowing their children are well cared for by our great clinical staff.”
Banyan’s dedicated team of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, certified nursing assistants, EMTs and caregivers work with each child’s primary care physician to develop a consistent, multidisciplinary plan of care to ensure that every child receives the care they need while reaching his or her maximum potential.
Banyan provides on-site physical and occupational developmental therapies in addition to speech, gross motor, fine-motor sensory and behavioral therapies that are conducted in a nurturing, educationally based environment. Any child who has a medical condition that requires skilled nursing and/or monitoring services may be eligible.
Sarasota’s state-of-the-art facility is Banyan’s second site for PPEC services. The organization’s flagship location in St. Petersburg, acquired in May 2020, has been in operation since 2011 and continues to support and serve families with special needs children throughout west central Florida.
