Child Life Services at Deaconess Hospital is there to help children and their families cope with needed medical services. We do this through a variety of ways at our multiple locations including in-patient care, out-patient services, and the emergency department.
We embrace the value of play in the healing process as we work to ensure optimal growth and development. Assessment of Child Life Services is done with the patient, family, physicians, and other hospital staff.
Our services mirror services provided at Riley Hospital for Children and we collaborate with their Child Life Department on a regular basis to stay on the leading edge of care.
