Child Support Services

At Covenant Children’s Hospital, we never forget that kids are kids first, no matter how sick or injured. And for them, going to the hospital can seem especially frightening. That’s why our staff includes an entire team dedicated to making their experiences more fun.

There are child life specialists available to help kids relax, have fun and de-stress in our large play rooms. There’s also a children’s chaplain available to provide emotional support for children and their families…and we even have a visiting hospital therapy dog!

Rely on Covenant Children’s Hospital to provide the quality health care your children deserve right in your own neighborhood. When you’re ready to get the region’s best pediatric care for your child, use our online tools to find a physician or contact us for more information.

Child Life Program

Child life specialists encourage successful coping through play, preparation, education and self-expression activities. They offer emotional support for families, and encourage optimum development of children facing a wide range of challenging experiences, particularly those related to health care and hospitalization. Because they understand that a child's well-being depends on the support of the family, child life specialists provide information, support and guidance to parents, siblings and other family members. They also play an important role in educating caregivers, administrators and the general public about the needs of children under stress.
