BROWN COUNTY PUBLIC HEALTH DIVISION
CHILDREN WITH SPECIAL HEALTH CARE NEEDS
SERVICE COORDINATION

The Brown County Public Health Division provides care coordination for children with special health care needs in Brown County. A child with special health care needs is defined as the following:

“Children (birth to 21 years) with a long term diagnosed or
suspected chronic physical, developmental, behavioral,
or emotional illness or condition that will last 12 months or longer,
and is severe enough to restrict normal growth, development,
or ability to engage in usual activities.”

This could include children with asthma, diabetes, genetic disorders, pre-term infants, JRA,
Down’s syndrome, cystic fibrosis, etc.


The goal of care coordination is referral to community resources (including accessing health care), education, support, and client advocacy. There is no charge for these services.

Services are voluntary and referrals can be made by the family themselves or any community agency. The public health nurse will work in conjunction with other agencies involved with the family.
