Innovative & Unique Option for Families

Loretta's Little Miracles is the "missing link" in the care options for children with medical needs, providing a combination of Nursing Services and Daycare under one roof.

Started by Doug and Loretta Hicks, our mission is to serve medically fragile children and their families, providing the "village" it requires to care for any child, let alone a child with medical needs.

After a successful career as a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Loretta saw it as her calling to create a "home away from home" for children with nursing needs, but very different from the rest.

Serving families since 2009, Loretta’s Little Miracles is a Title 22 Pediatric Day Health Care Skilled Nursing Facility (licensed and regulated) serving children aged 0-21 years of age.    


"Loretta’s Little Miracles, a Pediatric Day Healthcare Facility is part of our family. Our little boy even calls the nurses Aunt(s) and calls the owners Papa and Nana. They have been there for us since the beginning and hopefully they will be there to see our boy graduate from High School."

- Foster + Adoptive Parents Greg and Kerri since 2013
