    • Trach Buddies - Provides medical play and support for patients with a tracheostomy

    • Massage Therapy Program - Supports kids with chronic pain or other difficult circumstances who cannot find relief using traditional pharmaceuticals

    • Child Life Program in the Emergency Dept - Provided services to 200+ children in 2016. When a child arrives in the ER dept, they are thrust into an unfamiliar environment which can lead to crying, fussing and tantrums. This fear can make proper treatment a difficult task for providers. Child Life Specialists and their services help make the child and parents' time as stress-free as possible. This leads to better care and treatment of the child.
