Your Child's Stay

Your Child's Stay

(757) 668-7000

At CHKD, we understand how stressful it can be if your child needs to be hospitalized. Our staff will work hard to help your child cope with their hospital experience.

Please see our COVID-19 Visitation Guidelines here.

Because we know that children are not small adults, we have highly trained pediatric specialists at CHKD. All of our healthcare providers have been specially trained to care for children of all sizes, whether drawing blood for tests, preparing medications, taking X-rays, or planning menus.

As a parent or caregiver, you too play an important role in your child's care. Helping your child adjust by maintaining familiar routines such as bathing, reading, and feeding will help them cope better during their stay.

Open and Flexible Visitation

Please see our COVID-19 visitation guidelines here.


CHKD supports open and flexible visitation for our patients and encourages the involvement of family members and friends in the patient's care. 

CHKD will ensure that visitors enjoy full and equal visitation privileges, consistent with patient preferences and reasonable clinical/operational limitations. 

Patients (or their legal decision-makers, as may be the case) may receive visitors of their choosing and may also refuse to see visitors or withdraw consent to see visitors of their choosing at any time.
