Cumberland Hospital for Children and Adolescents doesn’t look like a hospital because it isn’t like most hospitals. Our unique environment offers a different approach to help children with complex needs. Children who fail repeatedly in conventional settings find new opportunities at Cumberland. We understand the unique psychological, social and behavioral challenges that often interfere with successful treatment of chronic disease, brain injury, neurological impairment and other medical conditions.
Our nurses, physicians and specialists treat both body and mind. We match medical protocols with strategies to analyze and modify behavior over time. We stabilize medical problems and help children develop positive behavioral coping strategies using an interdisciplinary approach. We help families cope with their child’s illness such as diabetes, eating disorders, and autism, or injuries related to chronic illness, enabling the child to achieve the best level of function possible – at home, in school and in the community.
