The Matheny School is fully-equipped to meet the healthcare needs of children who require essential, life-sustaining medical attention throughout the day.

Our Health Services team is led by a full-time, New Jersey certified school nurse and school physician. A team of pediatric nurses support the students’ safe and full participation in their school program by administering medications, tube feedings, and other medically necessary treatments.

The School facilitates open communication between nurses and families, which eases the transition from home to school and ensures that complex health concerns are addressed. The Matheny School is affiliated (and physically connected to) the larger Matheny Hospital, which specializes in the care of complex developmental disabilities. This leaves the School well-equipped for any medical emergencies.
