Going to the hospital can be a frightening experience. It is full of strange sights, sounds, smells, and unfamiliar people. To help ease the stress, the Memorial Health Dwaine & Cynthia Willett Children's Hospital of Savannah offers child life services for children, teens, and families. The goal of the child life program is to provide a supportive environment where children can gain a better understanding of the hospital, surgery, and medical treatments.

The child life specialists at the Memorial Health Willett Children's Hospital are trained to address the emotional needs of hospitalized children and adolescents. They use play and age-appropriate activities to create a comfortable environment in which children can express their fears and concerns. Find out what they can do for you:
