OUR STAFF

Our qualified, caring and motivated professionals possess the patience and sensitivity to care for children with complex health needs day after day. The staff is thoroughly trained and update and refine their skills through ongoing education.

Daily care is delivered by registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, certified nursing assistants, and physical, occupational and recreational therapists, who work under the direction of a board-certified pediatrician.

Children receive routine examinations from a pediatrician to evaluate their medical needs. Children also receive in-house consultations with specialists such as neurologists, orthopedists, physiatrists, gastroenterologists, a pharmacist and a dentist. Most of St. Mary’s doctors are on staff at Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters (CHKD) in Norfolk.

Our nurses provide around-the-clock care and stay in close touch with physicians about each child. Physicians are always available to meet with families or provide phone consultations to discuss a child’s condition.

Two fulltime social workers, a registered dietitian and four support coordinators complete the professional staff. We take an organized team approach to serving our children, and all team members recognize their important roles in maintaining the highest quality of care.

St. Mary’s has more than 280 full- and part-time employees. The nursing department is the largest department at the Home, with more than 150 positions in three eight-hour shifts for registered nurses (RNs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and direct support professionals (DSPs). The recreational therapy department is the second-largest department, with mostly part-time positions in the early evenings and weekends.
