About the Jefferson FAB Center for Complex Care:

Adolescents, post-adolescents, and those well into adulthood often face significant challenges finding the right fit as they switch from pediatricians to adult providers. Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, or other complex childhood-onset conditions, are especially impacted during the transition. Jefferson's FAB Center for Complex Care, located at Jefferson Health - Navy Yard, provides a comfortable space for our care teams to work with patients and help guide them as they continue to grow.

The highest quality of primary care is given to patients with, but not limited to, the following conditions:
  • Autism
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Down Syndrome
  • Spina Bifida

  • MD/DO or equivalent
  • Have completed a Family Medicine or Medicine-Pediatrics residency program
  • Have strong interest in caring for patients with complex-childhood onset conditions ages 12 and above and have prior experience in working with/providing care to such individuals during their medical training and/or in community settings
  • Have strong primary care skills
  • Previous experience or interest in quality improvement

Jefferson includes Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health, a dynamic university and health system with broad reach across the Delaware Valley. Jefferson is the second largest employer in Philadelphia and the largest health system in Philadelphia based on total licensed beds.

Through the merger of Thomas Jefferson University and Philadelphia University in 2017, our University includes ten colleges and four schools. We are an NCAA Division II university and an R2 national doctoral university offering undergraduate and graduate-level programs that provide students with a forward-thinking education in architecture, business, design, engineering, fashion and textiles, health, medicine and social science.

Jefferson Health, the clinical arm of Thomas Jefferson University, has grown from a three-hospital academic health center in 2015, to an 18-hospital health system through mergers and combinations that include hospitals at Abington Health, Aria Health, Kennedy Health, Magee Rehabilitation and Einstein Healthcare Network. We have over 50 outpatient and urgent care centers; ten Magnet®-designated hospitals (recognized by the ANCC for nursing excellence); the NCI-designated Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center (one of only 70 in the country and one of only two in the region); and one of the largest faculty-based telehealth networks in the country. In 2021, Jefferson Health became the sole owner of HealthPartners Plan, a not-for-profit health maintenance organization in Southeastern Pennsylvania. We are the first health system regionally to create an aligned payer-provider partnership.

Jefferson's mission, vision and values create an organization that attracts the best and the brightest students, faculty, staff, and healthcare professionals, as well as the most visionary leaders to drive exceptional results.
  • OUR MISSION: We improve lives.
