Virtual Tours

parents discuss surgery with doctor

Children's National offers several online tours to help prepare children and families for their journey.  From Pre-Surgical Tours to a tour of the ICU, we want to help ease your stress. 

A child facing surgery confronts more than surgery itself. Many questions race through their mind...questions like: "Will I wake up during surgery?" and "When will I be able to see my mom and dad?" This online tour will prepare you and your child for surgery. In addition to this tour, we strongly recommend that you bring your child to the hospital for the live tour as well. The live tour helps ease any anxiety your child may have, by allowing him/her to become familiar with the surroundings. Feel free to also bring along family members or others who might benefit from experiencing the tour.
