While You Are Here

The Hospital Experience

During your child's stay at Children's, we want you and your family to feel safe and comfortable. Our child life program offers fun activities for patients and families, and our chaplaincy program will help meet your emotional and spiritual needs while going through a difficult time. 

Please take some time to explore these additional services offered for patients and families:

Patient Safety

Patient safety is a top priority at Children's. You can help keep our patients safe by being aware of what is going on with your child's care and speaking up. We also urge you to learn more about medication safety while at the hospital.


Child Life Services

At Children’s, we care about the whole child. This means helping a child physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually, if needed. Our child life specialists are here to make your child's stay at Children's a little easier. Learn more about the programs we offer.

Contacting a Patient

We know family and friends want to keep in touch with patients while they are in the hospital. Here you will find information on contacting a patient and to using the phones inside our facilities.

Family Mentor Program

This program matches parents of children with similar conditions to help create and strengthen a family's a support system. Mentors can share their experiences to help parents with newly diagnosed children.
