Child Life Program

Designed to ease anxiety and answer families' questions, the Child Life Program promotes the development of hospitalized children and their families.

Child Life - Child with CoxHealth Children's Hospital StaffThe Child Life Program promotes the emotional well-being of pediatric patients and families. We encourage optimum growth and development of hospitalized infants and children, meeting the needs not only of our patients, but the ones who love them too.

The staff at CoxHealth wants to help you and your child understand more about his or her upcoming surgery and hospitalization.

Pre-Operative Information

CoxHealth Children's Hospital Services offers pre-operative services to help ease you and your child into hospitalization and surgery, including tour books for our surgery locations. Follow the link above for information and advice regarding your child's treatment at CoxHeath.

Easing Fears

When a child needs surgery, parents have a lot of important questions. The surgery program can help you prepare your child for surgery, making the experience comfortable and as non-threatening as possible.

Dealing with Separation from Family

Some units restrict visitation of children under the age of 14 years old. This can be stressful for children at home, when their family members are hospitalized.
