Program supports parents when children are alone in the hospital
The Josh Cares program exists at Cincinnati Children’s so that no critically or chronically ill child is alone when they are in the hospital.
Child Life fellows provide specialized care to children whose families are not able to be at the medical center with them on a consistent basis. Through these relationships, the patients are able to feel a sense of comfort and companionship.
