The child life pediatric unit program provides playtime opportunities for patients and their siblings in our specially designed playroom. When a patient is unable to go to the playroom, volunteers may take toys and activities to patient rooms and spend time entertaining our young patients in their room. Volunteers will help clean toys, clean the playroom, organize child life supplies, and other tasks as needed. Four hour shifts are available Monday - Friday.
