Support For Families

Children's National Health System's Concierge Services team aims to help families feel more at home during their visit or stay, whether it's assisting with hotel accommodations or simply providing toiletries to families.

Language Services

Interpreters are available for patients and families who may be deaf, hard of hearing, or who may not speak English as their first language at no cost.


Pastoral Care

Board-certified chaplains provide important spiritual and mental health services to all families and patients in the hospital. Children's National also has two chapels for patients, families, and staff seeking a quiet space for prayer or meditation.
