Our state legislature should move past partisan divides and come together to make things easier for these families, but unfortunately that hasn’t happened.

This year, David and Laura Quintanilla launched Vivicare Health Partners in Austin. Vivicare provides pediatric private duty nursing for medically fragile children.
When a newborn child has an ongoing medical condition — common issues can involve a ventilator, tracheostomy or gastrostomy care — it’s not usually in the best interests of the child or the family for the child to stay at the hospital indefinitely. In these instances, home nursing is crucial. Highly-skilled, experienced nurses can take care of the child, and help create a more stable presence in the home.
“We are here to be an extension of your ‘care family’ and take great pride in partnering with you to find nurses that are a match for each family,” David Quintanilla said. “This community-based health care allows for kids to be at home instead of the hospital or an institution. It also allows for moms and dads to work or have time to be with their other children.”
In addition to home nursing services, David and Laura hope to use their proximity to the state capitol building as an opportunity to be advocates for medically fragile children and policies that benefit them and their families.
“Families with medically fragile kids face so many challenges on a daily basis,” David said. “Our state legislature should move past partisan divides and come together to make things easier for these families, but unfortunately that hasn’t happened. We need to make sure the men and women representing these families understand the impact their votes have. We have to keep fighting the good fight.”
