Family-Centered Treatment Approach
At Covenant Children's Hospital, we never forget that kids are kids first, patients second. And when they're sick or injured, children want their parents close at hand. To help them feel safe and supported, we use a family-centered treatment approach whenever possible.
Parents, and even siblings, are integrated into the caregiving team. We encourage families to be active participants and try to make it as easy as possible for everyone to stay involved every step of the way.
That means providing:
- Special lounges where parents can relax
- Playrooms where kids and parents can escape the hospital environment
- Extra-large patient rooms
- Room Service
- Children get well faster when they get the calories and nutrients they need. Our room service dining program lets kids order meals and snacks when they are hungry, not just at fixed mealtimes. Registered dieticians design our menu full of kid-friendly, flavor-friendly choices.
We're also dedicated to respecting each family's values and customs, and the effects that can have on the types of treatment they feel comfortable receiving. To that end, we also empower families to make the best decisions for their child by giving parents all the information they need—including every available treatment option. We encourage families to take on active role in caring for their child.
