When families are involved in their children’s healthcare, the results are clear: better health outcomes and greater patient satisfaction. Family-centered care is an approach in patient care that promotes the health and well-being of children and their families through a respectful family-professional partnership. This approach relies on families, physicians, staff, and administrators working together to care for children.
At the Phyllis and David Komansky Center for Children’s Health, we provide family-centered care through collaborative efforts between families, the patient’s healthcare team, and Hospital administration. We strive to improve support systems by supplying families with all of the information and guidance they need so they can care for their children with confidence, and to create open channels of communication between you and your child’s healthcare team.
