My Hospital Story

To reassure children and help them anticipate what to expect when they come to the hospital, we’ve put together a series of virtual “walk-throughs” of our various clinics and locations, with photos of the places they’ll be seeing and stories about what will happen—starting with entering our sometimes busy lobby.
