The Matheny School is expertly equipped to meet the healthcare needs of children who require essential, life sustaining medical attention throughout the day. Under the leadership of a full-time New Jersey Certified school nurse and the school physician, our pediatric nurses support the students’ safe and full participation in their school program. They administer medications, tube feedings, and other medically necessary treatments.

We facilitate open communication between nurses and families, which eases the transition from home to school and ensures specific complex health concerns are addressed. Our families have great confidence in the quality of The Matheny School health services, knowing that we are affiliated with Matheny Hospital and can handle any medical emergency.
