Child and Family Services

Published On 10/04/2012

At Le Bonheur, we know that it takes more than the best medicine to help a child get well. It takes a community to care for the child and his or her family. A variety of services -- from pet therapy to pastoral care to tutoring -- are focused on taking care of the whole family.

Family Resource Center

The Family Resource Center offers tools to help you understand your child’s diagnosis in a comfortable setting.

Child Life

The Child Life department addresses the social and emotional needs of children and their families while in the hospital.

Summer Camps

Le Bonheur hosts summer camps for children with cardiac-related diagnoses or who have lost a loved one, and day camps for children with asthma and their parents

Chaplains

The Le Bonheur Spiritual Care staff is committed to taking care of body, mind and spirit, providing pastoral care to patients, family members, visitors, hospital staff and medical staff.

Sibling Playroom

The Forrest Sibling Playroom is a dedicated place that provides short-term child care for siblings of patients. The interactive environment gives parents and caregivers peace of mind, so they can focus on the needs of their sick or hospitalized child.

Social Work

Social workers are available 24 hours a day to support your family during your child's illness.

Hospital School Program

The Hospital School Program is an accredited school that provides year-round services to help your child remain on track academically.

FedExFamilyHouse

FedExFamilyHouse is a home away from home for out-of-town families who come to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital for treatment.
