Child Life Specialists

A visit to the hospital can be difficult for anyone. For children, even a routine visit can feel stressful. Child Life Specialists, as members of the health care team, use developmental interventions and play to help patients and their families understand and adjust to their medical experiences.

Child Life Specialists support patients from infants up to 18 years of age during their hospital experience. Brothers and sisters need help sometimes, too. Please talk to the Child Life Specialist if you have questions about the patient or their siblings. You may also wish to contact the Child Life Specialist to support children of adult patients who are struggling with the impact of hospitalization within the family. We encourage family involvement to assist with the patient’s ability to cope during the hospital experience.

Learn more about the services our Child Life Department offers including: Pre-Surgical Tours, Preparing Your Family for the Hospital and Child Life Practicum and Internships.
