Cumberland Hospital for Children and Adolescents doesn't look like a hospital because it isn't like most hospitals; it is a unique environment that offers a different approach to help children with complex needs. Children who repeatedly fail 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 on-site staff of nurses, physicians and specialists address these issues by treating both body and mind, paralleling medical protocols with strategies to analyze and successfully modify behavior over time. Through an interdisciplinary approach, we stabilize medical problems and help children develop positive behavioral coping strategies. We help families cope with the child's illnesses or injuries, enabling the child to achieve the best level of function possible at home, in school and in their community.
