According to an article published in Kaiser Health News (KHN), decreased Medicaid funding could cause more difficulties in healthcare, especially in rural areas. Patient advocates foresee more closings of rural facilities and reduced payments to doctors, as well as fewer enrollees and programs for those with disabilities or other special health needs.

Welcome to J&D Ultracare’s new blog page! As pediatric nursing is a fluid, ever-changing field, we are excited at the opportunity to stay connected to our current and prospective clients with up-to-date blogs about the going-ons in our office and within the home health care industry.
A little bit about us…
As a member of the pediatric community, J&D Ultracare proudly dedicates its services to providing skilled private nursing to medically fragile children within the comfort of their own home throughout the greater Hudson Valley area.
Located in Suffern, New York, our office first opened its doors in 1985. Since then, we have provided our nursing services to families all over the Hudson Valley, from the northern Sullivan County down to the Bronx, and everywhere in between, including Rockland, Westchester, Dutchess, Putnam, and Ulster counties. This wide radius has allowed us to help many families who may have otherwise had difficulty finding reliable and skilled pediatric nursing assistance.
Additionally, J&D Ultracare is licensed by the NYS Department of Health. Our company is also fully accredited by The Joint Commission.
About our services
J&D Ultracare employs over 200 skilled pedatric nurses. Each nurse is carefully screened and holds the necessary credentials to provide excellent service in their respective field. In short, we look for the best of the best! These nurses work closely and carefully with our in-house team to ensure individualized and attentive care is provided to each of our patients and their families. This especially pertains to scheduling, as we are aware that each family maintains varying schedules and availabilities. Our team is dedicated to accommodating these needs efficiently and effectively.
Our nurses specialize in pediatric care within every age range, including newborns, infants, children, adolescents, and even young adults. Our goal is to make the transition from the hospital to home as easy and seamless as possible. As a result, our Clinical Care Coordinators are happy to work with insurance case managers, discharge planners, physicians and families to make this possible. Once the patient has returned home, our dynamic team will continue to employ and monitor healthcare services.
In addition to providing both short-and-long term care, J&D Ultracare also provides training and support to families in order to allow for independent, individualized, and safe care for their loved ones. It is important to us to provide families with as much knowledge and independence as they require in caring for their loved ones. Because of this, our nurses are dedicated to providing information, resources, and support to our patients and their families, in addition to excellent care.
J&D Ultracare’s staff is comprised of both in-house and field-based professionals, and contains various departments. Our family is large, but tightly-knit, and has over a century of combined clinical and administrative experience. Our commitment and effort to providing excellent home care is unparalleled, and we pride ourselves on the fact that we regularly see positive patient outcomes and satisfaction.
If you are interested in receiving in-home pediatric nursing care for your loved one, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Receiving J&D Ultracare’s service is simple! Our company is contracted with many insurance companies, school districts, and New York State Medicaid.
