Helping kids be kids

 

Going to a hospital. Seeing doctors. Getting treatments. It can be a lot to bear – especially for our littlest patients. Child Life Services helps kids adjust and adds fun and positivity to their time with us.

Our classroom and bedside classes help kids get credit and keep learning during treatment.

From bingo in bed to therapy dogs, Child Life Services is here to help kids feel more themselves.
