Surgery tours

Having surgery can be stressful and scary for a child. To help ease these fears, pre-surgery tours are led weekly by a Child Life specialist. The tour allows patients who are at least 4 years old, and their families, to see the operating and recovery rooms before the day of the surgery. During the tour, the Child Life specialist will help you understand what will happen on the day of surgery. If your child is younger than 4 years old, a private tour can be arranged

Benefits of a pre-surgery tour:

Tour schedule:

Pre-surgery tours are held once a week and last 45 minutes to one hour. If you are unable to come to one of the scheduled tours, a private tour can be set up with a Child Life specialist at a more convenient time. To speak with a Child Life specialist, talk with your child’s medical team.
