A hospital visit can be a very scary time for children and their parents.

Child Life specialists at Levine Children’s Hospital are using innovative methods of psychosocial and emotional support to ease the anxiety of patients and allow them to cope during their hospital stay. Family-centered care is a cornerstone of Levine Children’s Hospital; the goal of Child Life is to create a safe haven for patients and families—one that fosters love, laughter, and peace of mind.
