Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
Adolescents and young adults with cancer have the same needs as their peers. They desire to be seen as individuals, yet group acceptance is very important. They want to have close relationships with friends, to feel that they’re understood, and to plan for a promising future. Our AYA Oncology Program provides a variety of non-medical services designed to help adolescents and young adults stand up as individuals without standing out because of their disease. Among them are:
The Teen Lounge has been designed for hospitalized adolescents (ages 12 and older), including those with cancer, as a space where they can relax in a teen-friendly environment. This room is also considered a medical free zone, where no medical discussions by staff or invasive procedures are allowed. The therapeutic activities and area help to promote normalization, peer interaction, and relaxation for any of our adolescent patients.
