Hospital Tours

Having surgery or a special procedure can be a challenging experience for children and parents, so Children's offers weekly pre-admission tours to help you prepare your child.  The tours are conducted by a registered nurse or a child life specialist and help to take away the child's fear of the unknown.  The children can have hands-on experience with the medical equipment in a positive atmosphere.  Brothers and sisters are also encouraged to attend.

Registration is required by email to Chelsea Acock, Same Day Surgery Child Life Specialist, at chelsea.acock@chp.edu. Please include your name, address, and phone number, and mention Hospital Tours. Or register by phone by calling 412-692-6366.
