There are many reasons that we choose the types of nursing we work in – pay, fear, or personal experience. But often times with pediatric home health care, there are fears that deter nurses. To combat those fears and break down the walls of pediatric nursing, we asked our employees the perceptions they hear about pediatric home health care. Every week, we’ll feature one of those fears and transform it with the reality of this rewarding career path.


New and continued benefits from eKidzCare

Benefits are an important part of your career and can sometimes be the make or break factor in accepting a new position. While benefits in the pediatric home health care industry are progressing slowly, we try to move at an accelerated pace for our employees as our organization continues to grow.

In 2019, we introduced our partnership with Gravie, a health insurance marketplace that provides individually-tailored plans to eKidzCare employees*. Gravie permits employees to choose their preferred insurance provider and allows eKidzCare to financially contribute monthly to lower the premium cost for the employee.

This year, we’ve added a new benefit to our collection – a 401(k) plan. This eKidzCare 401(k) Plan enrolls eligible employees in a contribution retirement plan. This addition adds to the already long list of benefits available at eKidzCare. See below for a full list of benefits and visit our Benefits Page to learn more about each.
