Prepare for Your Child's Appointment or Hospital Stay

Preparing yourself and your child for his or her appointment or hospital stay can alleviate some of the anxiety you may be feeling. There are several things you can do:

Understand your child's care and condition
Talk with your child's doctor or nurse before you check in. Discuss procedures or tests in detail so you will know exactly what to expect. Our Health Information A-Z section is a great resource where you can do some research on your own before you go.

Learn your way around our facilities
While no place will ever be as comfortable as your own home, we try very hard to make sure all of the necessary amenities are here for you.

Take time before your visit to learn how to get to the hospital, where to park and where to go once you get here.
