  • At Children�s Health Services, part of the Institute for Family Care, parents are assisted with computerized research on children�s health topics. Anne Walsh-Feeks, MS, Program Manager, (standing, R) assists Wendy Thomas (seated, L) with logging on to the Internet.
    The special healthcare needs of children, from newborns to adolescents, are the focus of Children�s Health Services, a new component of Winthrop�s Institute for Family Care.

    Children�s Health Services facilitates seamless navigation through Winthrop�s array of preventive, diagnostic, treatment, and educational programs. Referrals to Winthrop�s pediatricians are offered, in response to the parents� and children�s needs.

    Children�s Health Services is also concerned with developmentally disabled infants and toddlers, through age three. Its services include a home-based early intervention program, administered as part of a statewide program, which draws on the skills of specialized staff from Winthrop�s Home Health Care Department. They perform an initial evaluation and determine a treatment plan. Ongoing care is provided by the Winthrop Home Health Care staff, including physical, occupational, and speech therapists.

    Internet access is readily available to staff and visitors in the Women�s and Children�s Health Resource Room. Patients may use the Service�s computers to go online to research educational topics and obtain health-related information through a direct link to the Internet.

    Children�s Health Services also identifies community resources and services. �We are a �direction center,� helping people to find answers to their questions about children�s health. If the information is not directly at hand, we will research the topic and obtain it,� promised Anne Walsh-Feeks, MS, Program Manager.
