Exceptional Care for Children improves the lives of technology-dependent children and their families through skilled nursing, transitional and palliative care.

We are a haven for healing fragile bodies when improvement is possible, and a refuge for nurturing vulnerable spirits when a cure is unattainable.

The First & Only Skilled Pediatric Nursing Facility in the State of Delaware

Welcome to Exceptional Care for Children, a state-of-the-art residential healthcare facility serving technology-dependent children and their families. Located in Newark, Delaware, Exceptional Care for Children provides a continuum of care in a home-like environment.

Exceptional Care for Children (ECC) is the first and only pediatric, skilled nursing facility in Delaware.  Opening in 2006 with only 10 rooms, and having responded to increasing demands from our area's leading pediatric hospitals, ECC has completed two expansion projects and now features 31 unique and beautiful rooms.  ECC provides long-term, transitional, palliative, and end-of-life care to technology dependent children and their families.  Situated on nearly eight acres of serene, suburban property, ECC provides top-quality pediatric care in a home-like setting.
