About Exceptional Care for Children

Mission: Exceptional Care for Children improves the lives of medically-fragile children and their families through skilled nursing, transitional, and palliative care. We are a haven for healing fragile bodies when improvement is possible and a refuge for nurturing vulnerable spirits when a cure is unattainable.

Exceptional Care for Children is a pediatric skilled nursing facility located in Newark, Delaware that provides transitional, long term and palliative care to medically fragile and technology dependent children who are between the ages of birth and 21 years old.

ECC is the first and only facility of its kind in Delaware and one of very few in this country. As a top-100 ranked Nursing Home in the United States by U.S. News & World Report, we take pride in caring for our very inspiring residents and providing them with as normal a childhood as possible despite their medical challenges.
