Overview

Mission Statement

 

We provide a compassionate and positive environment where children with complex medical, mental health and educational needs receive specialized care from people who are committed to excellence, innovation and family support… so that children can reach their fullest potential and live their best life.

 


Background Statement

Founded in 1949, Franciscan Children's has maintained itself as an independent healthcare and educational institution located in Brighton, MA. As the only facility of its scope in the Northeast, Franciscan collaborates with many area teaching hospitals and universities, receives referrals from medical centers throughout New England and is fully accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) to provide medical, rehabilitation, dental, behavioral health and special educational services to more than 12,000 children and adolescents each year, many of whom have multiple, complex medical, mental health and educational diagnoses. Through this uniquely integrated network of programs, we have created a powerful post-acute continuum of care in one centralized location.


Impact Statement

Since 1949 Franciscan Children’s has served children and adolescents with complex medical, mental health and educational needs. We’re the only pediatric post-acute provider in New England, and many times, we tackle the challenges that others can’t or won’t. It is our privilege to care for children who need our help and their spirit motivates and inspires us every day.

Programs

Education and Care for Children and Young Adults with Complex Medical Challenges and Intellectual Disabilities

As school districts face the intense pressures imposed by high-stakes testing, budgetary restrictions, and the increased need for safety, parents of children with special health and education needs often struggle to find a setting that will provide the nurturing learning environments that will help their child to reach their academic, emotional, and physical potential. Franciscan fulfills that need for children and their families from 35 of our surrounding communities by leveraging the vast resources of our medical and therapeutic specialties to reinforce learning and care.

Life-Saving Behavioral Health Care for Young Children and Youth with Mental Health Conditions.

Mental health units are closing nationwide and around the Commonwealth; at the same time the demand for acute and community-based intervention is on the rise. More and more children are at risk for mental illness, and the severity of their disorders is increasing. Our programs serve as vital resources for the families and children affected.

Medical Care for Children with Complex Medical Conditions

Remarkable advancements have been made in technology and medicine to save babies whose lives may have been cut short by congenital defects, and those with cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis, genetic conditions and other disabilities. As meaningful as these medical innovations have been, the increased survival rate of these special infants has changed the landscape for those who provide patient care. Franciscan now must respond to the needs of young children with long-term medical challenges, such as ventilator dependency, fragile hearts, and severe neurological impairments. These children are significantly more fragile, and are much more likely to experience stroke, dangerous seizures, constriction of their airways, or other serious emergencies. Our role at Franciscan is to deliver critical “step down,” post-acute services for children who are out of intensive care but still too at-risk to return home.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

To prepare for our next phase of growth and improvement, we have launched an effort to build a sustainable philanthropy program that will help to provide the annual support the hospital needs to lead and adapt in today’s healthcare environment. General operating support this year will help us with the following programs, which are not reimbursed through insurance providers or families.

× Increase access to high-quality inpatient and short-term residential care for children and families “stuck” in local emergency rooms, NICUs, and unnecessarily restrictive environments.

× Physical improvements to the hospital campus to embrace patients and families in a therapeutic environment thoughtfully designed to provide superior care.

× Growth of our expertise and ability to provide outpatient services that respond to a variety of needs.

× Provision of specialized education services to that help children with complex medical conditions fulfill their potential.

× Development of new and innovative programs that will give children opportunities to explore play, dance, participate in music, and create art as essential components of their healing and recovery.

× Expanded outreach to at-risk youth through school-based programs, regardless of their insurance status or their family’s ability to pay.

× Infrastructure for research in suicide prevention, innovative treatments for childhood psychiatric disorders and new models for family centered support.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?

--
