Rodgers Medical Services is a private company owned by Dr David Rodgers and his wife Maggie Fanning. David is a rural GP with a large number of patients with disabilities in his practice. Maggie Fanning has a degree in nursing and midwifery, with postgraduate qualifications in Child, Adolescent and Family Health and a Graduate Diploma in Education. Maggie is the Principal of EdSpace Education and Training Centre in Benalla Victoria.
David and Maggie are parents of Daniel, who has extra needs, and this began a search for integrated care for their family. This journey led them to found EdSpace, a school that welcomed students who did not succeed in other settings because of a developmental disability.
The need for better communication between health services to support holistic care also led them to Jude Foster and Wraparound kids, a program that helps integrate communication and information sharing among the relevant people in the life of a person with a disability. Wraparound Kids is now owned and has been further developed by David and Maggie. Our passion is to provide the best care for families and individuals by bringing an interdisciplinary team-based approach to health, education and associated issues that impact on the lives of people with a disability and their families. We have used the latest technology to enable this communication to take place wherever you are.
