Hello Hospital Program Helps Reduce Patient Fears Prior to Surgery

Did you know CHOC has a “Hello Hospital” program designed to help children and parents learn what to expect when a child is scheduled for a procedure or surgery at CHOC?

Through a tour, a Recreation Therapist/Child Life Specialist will introduce future patients and their families to the hospital environment, procedures, and equipment with the goal of reducing the child’s anxieties.

CHOC understands that the experience of your child undergoing surgery can be stressful. The Hello Hospital program provides a non-threatening way for children to become familiar with CHOC before hospitalization. To learn more, click here: http://www.choc.org/patients/index.cfm?id=P00136
