The Matheny Medical and Educational Center is dedicated to helping children and adults with medically complex developmental disabilities achieve the highest quality of life possible. A medical center, private school, community services, and arts center, Matheny is also home to children and adults with cerebral palsy, spina bifida, Lesch-Nyhan disease, and a range of associated clinical conditions that affect every single aspect of their lives.
