Surgery Preparation

Child Life offers individualized developmentally appropriate information to children being scheduled for surgery.

Through the use of medical play, photos, tours and discussion a Child Life Specialist can make the process of hospitalization and or surgical procedures more comfortable for both the child and his family.  We hope the following photos will be helpful as you look forward to your time at Penn State Children's Hospital.


For more information on pre-hospital tours, please contact us at (717) 531-8366 or
