Children's Rehabilitative Services (CRS)

Children’s Rehabilitative Services (CRS) is a health care program that offers medical evaluation and treatment to children with special health care needs (CSHCN), ages 0-21. Medical services are also provided for sickle cell patients who are transitioned into an adult program. The CRS Program is funded by both federal and state governments. Eligibility is determined by medical diagnosis and family size and gross income. Health insurance and Medicaid are used in addition to program funds to cover medical costs. CRS strives to provide a holistic approach to the care of the patient by offering nursing, nutrition and social work, as needed. Multi-provider services are required to meet complex needs of the CRS patients. This necessitates much coordination and collaboration to ensure that the children receive the best care available.

CRS Offers:

  • Durable medical equipment, orthotic braces, hearing aids
  • Medicines and medical supplies
  • Speech, physical, occupational therapy
  • Hemophilia supplies
  • Summer camp for children, age 7-15.
