Child Life Services
Our family-centered approach to care recognizes that hospitalization is stressful for children in different ways than for adults. A child life specialist and board-certified medical art therapist are available to meet with children who come to Arnot Ogden Medical Center.
- We have age appropriate toys, games, art supplies and videos to bring to your room. Sometimes children process through play, and sometimes they just play.
- We help children prepare for surgery by explaining what they can expect to see, hear, and experience. We accompany them into surgery, if requested.
- We spend time with children when a family member is undergoing treatment.
Whether your child or a family member is receiving treatment, our services are available. Simply speak to your nurse about our services, or call to request assistance: (607) 737-4537.
