What to Expect as a Patient

When a child is seriously ill, the issues are far more complex than with an adult. So too is the degree of specialization needed to make your child well again. At Yale New Haven Children's Hospital, providing quality, expert, innovative care is one of the many reasons we are consistently recognized for being at the forefront of pediatric care among the nation's best children's hospitals.

Patient Rights and Responsibilities

Yale New Haven Hospital supports the rights of all patients and expects its staff and physicians to observe and protect these rights as a part of patient care. The prevention and treatment of disease, the education of healthcare professionals and patients, and clinical research must be conducted with an overriding concern for the patient and the recognition of the patient's dignity as a human being.

Visiting Hours and Guidelines

Parents and family members are never considered visitors at the Yale New Haven Children's Hospital. Instead, they are an integral part of the care team. Others will need passes from information desks located at either the Children's Hospital entrance or the York Street entrance.
