PCCA loves and cares for children with medically & developmentally complex needs.

An extension of your family

Finding a team of professionals to support you and your child can be incredibly difficult. Pediatric Complex Care of Arkansas has assembled a team of skilled, caring medical personnel and support staff. In addition to providing round-the-clock care, our children have access to equipment and therapies that may simply not be available in your home.

We hope that you will come to see our team as extended family members who love your child deeply, and who are committed to helping them develop to their fullest potential. Our goal is for you to feel that our building is an extension of your home. Family members are welcome to visit their children at any time, day or night, and you are invited into any part of your child’s regular day. We also have a private family room for you and your family members to enjoy time with your child.

If you would like to celebrate a holiday, special occasion, or simply spend extended time together as a family, your child can come home for a visit. Home visits are allowed for up to 14 consecutive days at a time.

Health benefits

Because we offer such a wide variety of therapies and are able to provide so much preventative care, the health benefits for your child are extraordinary at PCCA. Often our children benefit from better access to therapies that they may not qualify for in the community or on an outpatient basis. We offer therapy onsite with no travel requirements for appointments.

Little Rock is home to amazing pediatric specialists and medical centers. Our location in North Little Rock makes this world class care easily accessible to us. Even so, the majority of medical care takes place inside our own building. Our medical team staff observe at all times and provide prompt preventative care when concerns arise. This often leads to our children having fewer outside appointments, which reduces the risks of travel and contracting illness. PCCA staff often see our children improve in overall health with fewer hospitalizations.

Formerly known as Arkansas Pediatric Facility, Pediatric Complex Care of Arkansas is licensed by the Office of Long Term Care as an Intermediate Care Facility for Individuals with Intellectual Disability. All services are funded by Arkansas Medicaid Managed Care, otherwise known as Provider Led Shared Savings Entity (PASSE), so income of the family is not a consideration for services.
