Child Life Department

Kids don’t stop being kids just because they’re sick! Our goal at The Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Sacred Heart is to make hospitalization a positive and less stressful experience - so children can focus on being children.

What is a Child Life Specialist?

Child life specialists are child development experts who work to ensure that life remains as normal as possible for children in healthcare settings and other challenging environments. They promote effective coping through play, self-expression activities and age-appropriate medical preparation and education.

As advocates of family-centered care, child life specialists work in partnership with doctors, nurses, social workers and other members of the healthcare team to meet the unique emotional, developmental and cultural needs of each child and family.

The Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Sacred Heart has four child life specialists on staff, covering our inpatient floors, pediatric emergency room and pediatric infusion center.
