Patient and Family Services

From beside activities to education and space for healing, we help families feel more at ease during their visit.

Bringing families into the care process is at the heart of everything we do. Our family-centered care approach—including families in the care process—is both a philosophy and a practice.

We provide a comprehensive range of family services and resources designed to support each child and help families as they manage their child's health and medical care. That commitment extends to putting families in touch with health care professionals at our hospital who specialize in providing educational, social and emotional support—including social workers and child care specialists, and interventionists (personal advocates) from our innovative Novel Interventions in Children’s Healthcare (NICH) program.
