What is a PPEC?
by BrightStart Pediatrics

A PPEC is Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care – a nursing and therapy center for medically fragile infants and children.

Families have a few PPEC programs to choose from in Central Florida – but there’s only one BrightStart Pediatrics. We are exclusively a PPEC provider by design, to deliver the most effective, consistent care in the best facilities.

BrightStart PPEC centers serve the Central Florida area from three locations: Winter Garden, Sanford and Orlando. Our PPEC program works because it’s simple: nursing, therapy and love. And we’ve got the happy faces to prove it. What is a BrightStart Have a look for yourself!

The need for skilled pediatric nursing qualifies a patient for the BrightStart PPEC program. Typical skilled nursing care provided includes oxygen administration, apnea monitoring, G-tube feeds, tracheostomy care, and ventilator management. Care is provided by experienced pediatric nurses, therapists and aides.

Physical, Speech and Occupational Therapies treat patients on site. This enables better communication with nursing staff for improved outcomes. Therapy at the center eliminates the need for families to coordinate out-patient services.

Love – this is our key ingredient. It’s no secret, that BrightStart puts love into everything we do. From skilled, dedicated and caring staff, to centers with developmentally targeted rooms designed to provide interaction with similarly developing children.

Our website features updated photos and video of our patients, families and staff–never stock images. Regular and varied activities and field trips enrich our little patients and give them… yes, a bright start.

This is only a snapshot of the BrightStart Pediatrics program–detailed information is available anytime online. We encourage to you visit one of our centers to see the difference in what we do and how we do it.
