Because every kid
deserves to be a kid
Children have the right to grow up in their own homes, not hospitals.
An independent children’s home health care agency, PHS is here for one reason: helping kids with medical complexities live as fully as possible – at home, with their families, where they belong. We do this by providing comprehensive pediatric home care services across Minnesota, Wisconsin, Texas, Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana.
Our team has been partnering with health care professionals, payers and family caregivers for nearly 30 years. From insurance and technical support to hugs when things get overwhelming, PHS offers complete support for families.
Since we opened, thousands of kids have outlived expectations and successfully transitioned to adulthood.
