With 155 beds and nationally recognized center for neonatal care, diabetes, pediatric neurosurgery, childhood cancers, and other specialties, The University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital works to ensure the comprehensive care of children. In addition to excellent medical treatment, patients can take part in a variety of Child Life and Family Education programs to meet their developmental and therapeutic needs. Child Life specialists work to reduce the stress of the hospital experience for children and help them cope. Their programs focus on teaching youth to express themselves, helping them socialize with their peers, and supporting young siblings who may also be affected.
