Child and Family Life Specialists Providing Physical and Mental Care Through Family Life Services
The Child and Family Life Services Department is a team of professionals who strive to ensure the best physical and mental care for patients and families at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. Our child and family life specialist team does this through individualized intercessions, education, advocacy and research within the public and medical communities.
The Child and Family Life Services Department is the home to many different disciplines who work together to provide the highest quality care. Our child and family specialists include Child Life specialists who provide help to families and children trying to manage the hospital experience and Art and Music Therapists who form the Creative Arts Department.
In addition, the Department of Child and Family Life Services offers the Family Resource Center, a multimedia library that can help guide patients and families to the information that they seek. The department also manages the Pet Pals program that provides pet therapy for UH Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital's patients.
