Programs & Services

We have board-certified physicians across all of our specialties.

Preparing for surgery

We’re here to help ease the anxiety surrounding surgery — for both patients and families. Not only do we offer age-specific suggestions for how to allay a patient’s fears, but we also give families access to a child life specialist. They’ll walk you through the process, step by step.

Pre-surgery tour

The Child Life Department offers pre-surgery tours to show pediatric patients what to expect when they are here for an upcoming surgery. During the tour, a child life specialist will give information about the areas the patient will see during their stay at the hospital, including the admitting area, surgery waiting room, pre-surgery room and recovery area.
