Voluntary Pediatric Recognition Program (VPRP)
The goal of this program is to increase the readiness of hospitals to care for pediatric patients. We are preparing to pilot the "Pediatric Ready" Level of the program and are actively looking for hospitals that are interested in participating. If your facility is interested in being an early adopter of the program and would like to participate, please contact the program manager at email@example.com for more information.

EMS Recognition Program
The EMS Recognition Program has as its primary purpose the improvement of pediatric emergency care outcomes and patient safety within the prehospital environment (local, regional, and state levels). The EMS Recognition Program will prepare EMS agencies to provide higher quality care for infants, children and adolescents for the evaluation, treatment and/or stabilization of children with medical and traumatic emergencies. If you are interested in preparing your EMS agency to become pediatric ready, please follow the links below to download additional information.
