RANKEN JORDAN PEDIATRIC BRIDGE HOSPITAL
Ranken Jordan is the first pediatric bridge hospital helping kids with complex medical conditions and their families transition from the acute care hospital to home. Advances in medicine are saving more children’s lives; however, many of these children have severe illnesses or injuries. Without Ranken Jordan, these children are likely to have frequent ER and hospital re-admissions or must live in adult nursing homes. Our Care Beyond the Bedside model gets even the sickest children out of bed. Combining normal childhood activities with innovative medical care and rehabilitation creates a powerful path to recovery. By fostering strong partnerships with traditional acute care hospitals and by including the whole family in the care team we see improved outcomes and successful transitions home.
With your support we can help more children transition from hospital to home. In 2013, we served nearly 864 children and families and we consistently run a referral list of more than 20 kids. The need for our bridge hospital concept is greater than ever. By training with Ranken Jordan and raising funds, you will help us grow so we can bring our innovative care to more kids and families.
"Ranken Jordan Pediatric Bridge Hospital is thrilled to partner with Rungevity and the Quinn Family Foundation, We feel that Rungevity will allow us to not only increase our visibility in the community but will raise significant funds to help medically complex children bridge the gap between big hospitals and home. Team Ranken Jordan will be walking/running the streets to help kids on their road to recovery."
-Lauri Tanner, CEO and President of Ranken Jordan
