The CYSHCN Program helps to address complex care issues to improve the health and well-being for children aged birth to 18 years old who have or are suspected of having chronic conditions, delays or disabilities. The Health District also works to eliminate systems barriers that these families may face and works collaboratively with community care providers coordinating NICU discharge planning meetings and the Benton Franklin Feeding Team.

This community service supports the child (Birth to 18) and family in the transition from hospital/clinic to home. Public Health staff continue to be available to the family and facilitate services as they progress through the continuum of care. This service is provided to families regardless of income and there is no charge to the family for CYSHCN services.
