How is a referral made?
The patient's primary care doctor or a member of the inpatient medical team can refer to The Hummingbird Program.
What happens when a family is referred?
The Hummingbird team meets with the child and family to learn more about the medical condition. The team works to understand overall concerns about the child's health and the goals and priorities that are most important to them.
The ongoing support offered by the Hummingbird Program will be tailored to meet the unique need and identified goals and wishes of your child and family.
