Pre-admission Orientation

En Español

The Pre-admission Orientation program seeks to familiarize children and parents with the hospital environment before admission. Children become acquainted with the sights, sounds, people and events they are likely to encounter after admission. The goal is to reduce patients' and parents' anxieties which accompany unfamiliar surroundings and events. At the orientation, parents and children will take a tour of the hospital, have an opportunity to become familiar with medical equipment, learn what to expect before, during and after surgery and have a question and answer session.

Parents are encouraged to call the Child Life and Education department at 364-1412 to schedule a tour. Often these tours can be scheduled on the same day as a clinic appointment. Pamphlets on the Preadmission Orientation program are available for physicians upon request.
