Child Life Services
Cleveland Clinic Children's Child Life Specialists are health professionals who assist children, adolescents and their families as they prepare for and cope with pediatric medical and emotional experiences, such as surgery, hospitalization, tests and procedures. We’ve discovered that when children understand what is happening to them, they cope more effectively and experience less psychological trauma and anxiety. Our Child Life Specialists are trained in child development, child life, education and psychology.

A child’s illness or injury is difficult for everyone involved.

The unit is staffed 24 hours a day by physicians and nurses who specialize in pediatric healthcare.
Hospital Care Coordinated With Your Physician
Your child's primary care physician will coordinate their care during their hospital stay. Primary care physicians may admit and manage their patients, or they may choose to have their inpatients managed by private practice pediatricians or Cleveland Clinic Children’s pediatric hospitalists.
