We Are Here for You

Yale New Haven Children's Hospital is recognized for advanced clinical care. We are committed to keeping you and your family safe and comfortable when you come to us at one of our Children’s Hospital campuses or at our Pediatric Specialty Centers.

We are currently scheduling appointments, surgeries and procedures. Contact your healthcare provider if you postponed an appointment due to COVID-19.

Preparing For Your Appointment

With extra precautions in place to ensure patient and visitor safety, stay up to date with our latest protocols. At our hospitals, all patients and visitors are required to wear masks. We ask about symptoms and check their temperatures at the door.

Surgeries and Procedures

Our operating rooms and procedural areas meet the most stringent guidelines for cleanliness and safety. If you have a scheduled procedure, our teams will walk you through new, easy processes for pre-testing, arrival and discharge. These include using mobile device check-in and reduced on-site paperwork.
