Inpatient Family Guide

Your Inpatient Stay at All Children's Hospital
A Guide for Families

All Children’s Hospital has been caring for kids for many years. We know that children—and parents—can be worried, sad or even angry about being sick or needing to stay in the Hospital. It’s a little easier when you know what to expect and understand what’s going on around you. We hope this guide will be a handy source of information about how our Hospital works. If you have questions or need assistance, don't be afraid to ask. We are here to help. See the list below for the contents of the Inpatient Family Guide or download it now (28 Page PDF).
