St. Margaret's Center

At St. Margaret’s we believe kids who are facing the most serious medical challenges deserve the opportunity to just be kids.


St. Margaret’s Center offers cutting-edge, 24-hour long-term intensive medical care to chronically ill children and children who have disabilities. 


But, more than just skilled care, St. Margaret’s is a place where infants, children and young adults can learn and grow despite any obstacle. We’re focused on creating a full childhood experience for every patient, which includes activities, school, family and friends in a warm atmosphere that feels like home. We see our patients as kids, not conditions.
