Our Response to COVID-19

The Charles Lazarus Children’s Abilities Center appreciates the need for COVID-19 services for children with mobility issues. To this end, we have developed two programs.

Precision Recovery: COVID-19

We identified a critical need for daily symptom monitoring of patients showing signs and symptoms of COVID-19. The Precision Recovery COVID-19 Program allows health care providers to monitor patients with a confirmed or suspected COVID-19 diagnosis from the safety of their home. Enrolled patients completed daily symptom tracking via a smart device and participated in follow-up Zoom visits with a licensed health care provider for symptom tracking and clinical evaluation. We have now transitioned patient care to the Condition Management Program. If you are experiencing acute COVID-19 symptoms and are interested in enrolling, please ask your Mount Sinai health care provider for a referral to this program.

Post-Acute COVID-19 Program

In the wake of COVID-19, the medical community has begun to acknowledge a subgroup of patients presenting with long COVID, or persistent symptoms after an initial COVID-19 infection. The team at the Mount Sinai Health System was among the first in the world to identify this novel symptom presentation and name it post-acute COVID-19 syndrome, or PACS. To address the needs of individuals experiencing PACS, the Department of Rehabilitation and Human Performance, along with Mount Sinai’s Center for Post-COVID Care, has developed a novel rehabilitation program. We are one of very few centers in the country providing these services to patients of all ages. To learn more about this program, please email us at PRcovid@mountsinai.org.
