Are you interested in working for a PPEC? Here are 5 reasons working for a PPEC is rewarding.
What is a PPEC?
PPEC stands for Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care. A PPEC center is a licensed, non-residential, day treatment program prescribed by a physician for medically complex and technologically dependent children. Care is provided by a team of skilled pediatric professionals.
Benefits of working at a PPEC include:
1. Building a bond with the patients
Working at a PPEC allows you to build strong bonds with the patients since you are with them often. PPECs allow you to watch and assist with the patients growth and milestones which creates trust and companionship between the two.
2. All day shifts
PPECs are open during the day therefore, there are no night shifts.
3. Improving quality of life
One of the goals of a PPEC is to limit the amount of hospital visits each child has. This is done by the nurses providing individualized, quality care to each patient in a daycare-like setting.
4. Continued learning
Each patient is different at PPECs which mean the nurses are constantly learning how to provide the best care. Every nurse learns the newest technology, methods, and understands each medical condition. Improving their personal and professional growth!
5. Working in a team setting
At PPECs it is important to work as a team and communicate with each other in order to provide the best care to the patients. This improves skills like team building, communication, and leadership qualities.

Why should a child go to Tender Care PPEC?
Tender Care PPEC provides care for medically complex and fragile children from birth to 21 years of age in a daycare-like environment staffed with nurses, CNAs, and therapists. We are the first independently owned PPEC in the State of Florida with our initial center opening in 1988. This means we have an abundance of experience and knowledge in providing loving care to this special pediatric population. We have 6 Tender Care PPEC centers throughout Florida, with our newest facility located in Lake Park.
Our goal is to enhance the development of each child through collaborative relationships between families, physicians, nurses, and therapists. This holistic approach to care is carried out in an environment that allows the child to engage in social interactions with their peers. This results in thriving children, well-positioned to achieve their greatest potential. We also offer transportation at no cost and provide nutritious meals throughout the day.
