Ridge Crest Pediatric Services



Started in 1974 by a group of concerned parents with special needs children, Ridge Crest is a 33-bed sub-acute care facility located in Sellersville, PA (Bucks County) for medically-fragile or technology-dependent children who may or may not have a developmental disability diagnosis.

Ridge Crest serves children from throughout the Lehigh and Delaware Valleys. Our dedicated and talented staff includes a Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner who conducts routine rounds ensuring attentive medical care is given to each and every child. In addition to treatment, children also experience a loving and nurturing environment structured with a daily routine complete with educational components, stimulating after-school activities, special services and outings.

Programs and Services:

Transitional Care

For children who plan on being cared for in the family home, but who may still require some medical or nursing support to make that possible. Highly trained staff provide education and support to help families gain the skills they will need when loved ones return home from medical settings.
Respite Care

A vacation spot for special children between the ages of six months to 21 years that need to be away from home. Visits range from days to weeks or longer, if needed. Children bring all of their personal items, equipment and medications with them and Ridge Crest provides the rest in a fun, homelike environment.
Residential Long-Term Care

Children live and thrive at the facility until they reach adulthood or no longer require round the clock nursing care. The goal of the program is to allow each child the opportunity to reach their fullest potential physically, cognitively, emotionally, spiritually and socially.
Summer Camp

For nine weeks each summer, children with developmental disabilities in need of medical care receive socialization and educational opportunities that are truly once in a lifetime experiences. Activities include trips to the zoo, overnight camping, a day at Sesame Place and swimming.
