While hospitals are great at caring for the health of children, there was a need for more emphasis on their patient’s emotional needs.
Every quarter we bring together child life specialists from all of the hospitals with pediatric departments to share resources, best practices, and help bring national resources to the area.
How We Do It
The Louisiana Child Life council is made up of hospital directors in charge of coordinating activities for the children in their facilities. They help celebrate birthdays, plan fun activities, and find creative ways to bring joy to these kids. While doctors fix broken bones, these guys fix broken smiles.
