Description: The JaxHATS clinic is run in partnership between Wolfson’s Children’s Hospital and Shands Medical Center for youth, ages 16-26 with chronic medical or developmental problems in the counties of Duval, Nassau, Baker, Clay, and St. Johns in Florida. JaxHATS has a multi-disciplinary staff that includes a pediatrician, adult internal medicine specialist, nurse care coordinators and a transition specialist who provide primary medical care to address the young person's immediate medical needs. The JaxHATS team also works with youth over time, to help them gain the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their long term life goals. Services provided by JaxHATS are covered by Medicaid, Children's Medical Services and most other health insurance plans. Transition to adulthood is a time of change and one that takes preparation. For teens and young adults with disabilities and special health care needs there are many complex issues to learn about. Through this time of transition, it is important to stay as healthy as possible, since good health promotes success in the adult roles of employment, lifelong learning, and independent community living. The transition from pediatric health care to adult-oriented health care can be very complicated for people with disabilities and chronic health conditions. The Jacksonville Health and Transition Services (JaxHATS) clinic was created to help make this transition easier.
Mission: To provide a continuum of comprehensive, accessible, and quality health care for youth and young adults with special health care needs living in Northeast Florida.
We are looking for an individual who is comfortable working with youth and young adults with special health care needs. We have many patients with physical, intellectual and developmental disabilities and the NHC member must demonstrate a willingness to learn about these patient populations and have an openness to recognize their needs. The individual must also demonstrate cultural humility and recognize internal bias that could impact care.
