Maps & Directions

We have many suggestions for how to make your child's time at CHaD more comfortable for them, and less stressful for you. Patients and their families are our number one priority.

The Child Life Program focuses on the psychosocial, emotional, and developmental needs of children and the impact that illness, injury, and hospitalization can have on patients and families. We also consult with other areas of CHaD to support children and provide age-appropriate toys and equipment.
