Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center (PVHMC) recently held a ribbon cutting
to celebrate the grand opening of its second Milestones Center for Child
Development in Chino Hills. Two certificates and a plaque were presented
to the center from the city and county during the ceremony. The center’s
opening marks the successful response to the recent demand for pediatric
rehabilitation services in the greater Los Angeles and San Bernardino Counties.
More than 100 guests were in attendance at the event, held at the lobby
of Pomona Valley Health Center Chino Hills at Grand, where guests had
the opportunity to snack on food provided by Cannataro’s Italian
Restaurant and Nothing Bundt Cakes, both located in Chino. Guests were
also encouraged to participate in a raffle for two complimentary wine
tasting tickets where Maria Castro, the mother of a Milestones patient
(I think MS in Sandy’s email was for Milestones), emerged the winner.
In addition to this, certificates were presented to the new Milestones
center from Curt Haman, Fourth District Supervisor of San Bernardino County
and Chino Hills City Council Member, Peter Rogers. A plaque was presented
from Zeb Welborn, Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce Executive Director.
Dedicated exclusively to the rehabilitative needs of children, the new,
2,686-square foot Milestones Center, located at Pomona Valley Health Center
Chino Hills, offers comprehensive pediatric physical therapy, occupational
therapy, and speech and language therapy services. This also includes
treatments for a variety of diagnoses including cerebral palsy, Down syndrome,
autism, hearing loss, cleft lip and palate, muscle imbalances, scoliosis,
developmental delays and more. The Milestones facilities and clinical
programming are designed to help children with developmental disabilities
maximize their potential.
Since opening its doors, the original Milestones Center for Child Development
has served more than 4,200 infants and adolescents. However, the Claremont
center is at capacity, as access to pediatric rehabilitation is limited
in this southwestern corner of San Bernardino County and adjacent communities
in eastern Los Angeles County.
Also spurring the need for a second location is patient demographics. Many
of the families currently served by the Claremont facility reside south
of Interstate 10. PVHMC has seen some families who have been traveling
to Claremont for services have chosen to switch to the new facility closer
to home. In addition, the new center provides services to families from
all socioeconomic levels, with a large percentage of Milestones patients
receiving government-sponsored health coverage.
The new Milestones Center for Child Development is located at 2140 Grand
Avenue in Chino Hills. Most insurance plans are accepted, and cash rates
also are available. Physician referrals are required. To learn more about
