Child Life Program
Utilizing therapeutic play and patient education, the Child Life Program helps to reduce the stress and anxiety children and their family may experience during hospitalization. A child life specialist and team of volunteers organize play sessions and bring toys and games to those children who are unable to leave their rooms. Frequent visits to the unit by celebrities, clowns, magicians and pet therapists bring a smile to our youngest patients' faces.

Infant Hearing Screening
All babies born at Broward Health Children's Hospital are screened for hearing impairment. Special sensors are placed on the back of the baby's neck to measure brainwave response to sound stimulation and to identify hearing problems during the first days of life. Those with hearing impairment are referred to support programs that can help maximize the infant's hearing so development is not adversely affected.
A variety of comprehensive care teams work together to form a complete community education and outreach plan each year. By using support groups, health fairs, physician lectures, senior services, maternal and child health, and community screenings we work to improve the health of the residents of Broward County. We offer injury prevention programs such as bicycle safety, pool safety, and car safety. By making maternal instructional programs such as car seat safety, shaken baby syndrome, and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) available, we work to prevent the morbidity of infants and new mothers.
