Patients & Families

Connecticut Children’s is the only medical center in Connecticut dedicated to caring exclusively for children. We have the physicians, staff, expertise and technology readily available to give children of all ages the care they deserve, so they can resume living their lives to the greatest potential.

Family-centered care is at the core of everything we do at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. When your child is in our care, we do everything we can to keep you fully informed, directly involved and as close to your child as possible. Whether the patient is a newborn or a teenager, from your first encounter with Connecticut Children's to discharge, our healthcare professionals consult with families on all medical decisions and encourage parents to be present for most treatments.

Patients and families are encouraged to learn as much as possible about Connecticut Children's Medical Center, what to expect when visiting our facilities, and how to best prepare for treatment. Read our Welcome Guide to learn more.
