At Shriners Hospitals for Children—Cincinnati, the health and safety of our patients, families, volunteers and staff is our top priority. With the rapidly evolving situation regarding coronavirus (COVID-19,) we are closely monitoring local health departments and The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC,) and are actively following their recommendations.

We are working diligently to reschedule appointments postponed during the quarantine. We also understand you may feel some anxiety about bringing your child into the hospital. Our plans to restart routine care have been thoughtfully developed and implemented to keep everyone safe. We are also scheduling some appointments for new patients. If you have any questions, please call the hospital at 855-206-2096.

Families that have appointments of any kind are asked to arrive with ONLY ONE parent or guardian and no additional family members or guests.

When you arrive for your appointment, if you and your child are not already wearing a mask, you will receive one. You will both be screened for illness and will notice new safety precautions in place to promote clean hands, a clean environment, and social distancing.

We are here for you, and look forward to seeing you soon.

Our nursing staff knows that children need the love and emotional support of parents and family during the stressful time of being in the hospital.

In recognition of all of these needs, our nursing fosters an environment that keeps parents and families close to the child and actively involved in meeting the individual needs of the child. The healthcare team and family develop a plan of care to meet the child’s physical, emotional, and developmental needs while in the hospital and anticipate the family’s needs in continuing the child’s care at home.

Each child admitted to Shriners Hospitals for Children — Cincinnati is assigned a primary nurse who coordinates the child’s care program with the patient care team.
