Preparing for Your Stay

Bringing a child to the hospital for a routine check-up, surgical procedure or long-term stay can be challenging and stressful—for both the child and family. At C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, we believe the more you know about your upcoming visit, the better that experience will be for everyone.

That's why we created this section of our Web site - to familiarize you with the hospital environment and prepare you for your visit. We've included lots of information—from how to talk to your child about coming to the hospital to where to find the admitting desk when you arrive to what to bring from home and more.
