Helping Kids Be Kids — Even in the Hospital

Our child life specialists work with children to help them understand their illnesses and treatments. That helps families feel more comfortable at the hospital.

How We Help Children

Research shows children with any medical condition need more than just medical care to heal and recover. They need support, interaction with their peers and time to "play."
