Welcome to the PRC

Your child has been referred to the Pediatric Resource Center (PRC) for medical and social services. These services will be provided by a team consisting of a healthcare professional and a case coordinator.

A PRC healthcare provider who has been specially trained in the areas of child physical and/or sexual abuse and neglect will examine your child. This examination is an important part of your child's health and safety.

A case coordinator will provide medical social services to you and your child. Before, during and after the exam, the PRC staff will advocate for the health, safety and well-being of your child.
