Pediatric tours help relieve the anxiety children may feel going to an unfamiliar place without parents at their side.
Parents feel more relieved knowing their children are in good hands. During this visit, children can also take care of necessary pre-admission tests, saving an additional trip for the family.
Augusta Health offers special guided tours of our surgical area every Thursday evening for children who will be patients there. During the 30 minute tour children:
- Meet staff members
- Watch a video
- Look in an operating room
- Visit the “recovery area”
They do all this without their parents to build confidence and better prepare them for the day of surgery experience.
To learn more or to schedule a tour for your child, please call us between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
If you need to cancel or reschedule a session, please let us know by 4:30 p.m. the day of your appointment.
