Patients and Families

A.) Outpatient Surgery Pre-Admission Tours

Having a surgery or procedure can be a challenging experience for children and parents, so Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC offers free, weekly pre-admission tours to help you prepare. The tours are conducted by a registered nurse or child life specialist and are focused on helping to take away the child’s fear of the unknown. The children have the opportunity to have hands-on experience with the equipment in a positive atmosphere. Brothers and sisters also are encouraged to attend. The tour takes about one hour.

Registration is required by calling 412-692-6366.

Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of all children through excellence in patient care, teaching and research.

It is the policy of Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh to provide care and service to all patients without regard to race, religion, color, sex, national origin or physical or mental ability.
