Lee Zimmerman, CEO and Founder of The Kidz Club, recognized the need for children with medical complexities to have access to daily nursing care, therapies, and friends – all in an enriching environment. His goal to positively impact the whole family unit through the care of these special children led to the establishment of The Kidz Club, the first Prescribed Pediatric Extended Care facility in Kentucky.

The Kidz Club was founded out of compassion and a commitment to improve, empower, and enrich the lives of children with medical complexities as well as their families.

Children who have an ongoing medical condition and require daily skilled nursing or monitoring may be eligible to attend The Kidz Club. A provider referral is not required to determine a child’s eligibility for services.

Children with emotional, behavioral, and/or psychosocial diagnoses that do not require skilled nursing care may not qualify for our services. For more information, please visit our resources page.
