Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
Staff members of the Child Life Program are caring professionals who assess the specific needs of children anticipating a hospital stay. They develop and implement individual and group activities to help make each child’s hospital stay as pleasant as possible.
Child Life Specialists and Child Life Assistants work together as a team to support our patients and their families. Here’s a closer look at what they do:
A child life specialist is available in the Emergency Department to provide support and to prepare children and their families during emergency and trauma situations.
Child Life and Music Therapy also provide assistance to children and families in the critical care areas. Along with providing patient support, our staff can support siblings when visiting a brother or sister in the Intensive Care Units (NICU, PICU, and CICU).
Child Life and Music Therapy regularly work with the multidisciplinary care teams to provide bereavement support to the whole family when appropriate.
