Mission:

Enhancing the well-being of adolescents, 12 and older, and adults with Down syndrome using a team approach to provide comprehensive, holistic, community-based health care services.

Philosophy:

Our multidisciplinary team has served the health and psychosocial needs of over 5,000 adolescents and adults with Down syndrome since the center opened in January 1992.

We believe that:

  • All individuals are worthy and deserving of comprehensive and compassionate health care.
  • Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
  • People with Down syndrome should be active participants in their health care.
  • Health promotion behaviors have a positive impact on the quality of a person’s life.

Research, education and the dissemination of information related to Down syndrome foster an understanding and acceptance of people with Down syndrome.

Goals, Values:

  • Provide comprehensive and compassionate health care services reflective of standards of professional excellence and current research findings.
  • Enhance the health of adults and adolescents with Down syndrome.
  • Encourage individuals with Down syndrome and their families to develop health promoting behaviors.
  • Foster an understanding and acceptance of individuals with Down syndrome.

For more information or to schedule a visit to the center, please call 847.318.2303.
