Our Philosophy of Care

When illness or disability strikes an individual child, it touches the entire family.

At La Rabida, we understand the impact on both the patient and family. That’s why we take a beyond medicine approach to a child’s treatment plan.

We embrace a family-centered philosophy of care, empowering families to manage their child’s needs and opportunities, both inside and outside of the hospital. We invite parents and caregivers as members of their child’s care team. Working together, we nurture the wellbeing of the child’s body, mind and spirit.

We make every effort to be culturally sensitive in working with different patients and their families, providing care that fits our patients and not trying to change our patients to fit our care.

At La Rabida, we raise possibilities. We make futures brighter.
