July 27, 2020 – At this uncertain time, many par-ents are hesitant to send their medically challenged and often fragile children to a large public school or daycare center. 
Shamekia Shine is just such a parent and for her, the solution was clear.  "I was hesitant about leaving my son with anyone besides me, especially during this pan-demic,” she said,  “but I feel very safe and secure about going to work knowing he is at PediPec.” She added, “I couldn’t have chosen a better place for my son.”
PediPec is a pediatric daycare center for children with chronic medical conditions. 
“You can send your child to a large public school where the ratio may be 1 nurse to every 40 kids or you can send them to PediPec where there are far fewer  children and the ratio is 1 nurse and 1 aide to every 5-6 children” says Grizzy Miller, RN, President of PediPec. 
PediPec is located at 1402 Royal Palm Beach Blvd. in Royal Palm Beach, with other centers in Broward and Miami-Dade counties. Trans-portation is provided and the cost is covered by Medicaid.
All PediPec centers have remained open throughout the COVID-19 pan-demic to provide much needed assistance to families during this difficult time. They are now accepting enrollment for Fall, 2020 in addition to their aftercare and summer program.
PediPec (known in the industry as a PPEC – Prescribed Pediatric Ex-tended Care) specializes in providing a complete range of services for children from birth up to age 21 with such medical conditions as prema-turity, neurological disorders (including cerebral palsy and seizure disor-ders), respiratory conditions, diabetes, and feeding disorders, as well as services for those who are dependent on any medical equipment. The center offers physical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapies, along with highly skilled full-time nursing care. 
PediPec’s sister company, PediStat, specializes in providing pediatric home medical equipment to families caring for children at home with chronic medical needs.
