We encourage families to visit the hospital for a pre-surgical tour so children and caregivers can familiarize themselves with the process. The tours, which take place every Sunday at 2 pm, end with refreshments and a question-and-answer period.
Registration is required to attend a pre-surgical tour. It is recommended that you attend the tour the Sunday before your child’s surgery. Please fill out the registration form completely and e-mail it to Volunteer Services. If you arrive later than 15 minutes after the tour start time we cannot guarantee that we can provide you with a tour.
• Tours: Sunday at 2 pm. Please arrive at 1:45pm • Length of tour: 1- 1.5 hours • Where: Sign in at Information Desk in the hospital Atrium.
