Our NICU provides the highest degree of quality care for the most critically ill infants. Neonatologists, neonatal nurse practitioners, registered nurses and specially trained respiratory therapists are available in-person 24 hours a day, and each baby receives constant observation and evaluation from our specially trained team.

Child Life Services

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.

Our Child Life Specialists assist pediatric patients and their families at Cleveland Clinic's main campus, Fairview Hospital and Hillcrest Hospital.
