Children with Complex Medical Needs

At VHA we are investing in research with our strategic partners who are leaders in the field.  These investments will ensure that we have the capacity to meet the unique and complex challenges that children with complex health needs and their families experience. The dynamic nature of providing high quality care to this population requires a focused approach that recognizes the specific and unique challenges experienced in the home. It is our goal to enhance the quality of life and outcomes for these children and their families through our various research initiatives.
