Transition Care is a program to help pediatric patients initiate a pathway to self-sufficiency and assist them in taking charge of their condition as they move from pediatric care to adult digestive care. We facilitate adjustment to the new environment of adult care, introduce them to new physicians, and help them understand the critical importance of keeping up-to-date with therapies and appointments. This process begins in adolescence (around the age of 12) and continues through the teen years and into young adulthood (through age 18).
Your digestive care -- physician appointments, diagnostic testing and treatment therapies -- is in one convenient location, all coordinated by clinical program specialists who take you step-by-step through the care process from diagnosis to treatment and recovery.
