The Care Team

Your child's care at Renown Children's Hospital is founded on a concept called “family-centered care.” We believe this will help your child heal faster and get home quicker. Therefore, you are a critical member of your child's care team.

All physicians and employees wear ID badges with their name, department and photo. Your care team may include certified physicians, registered nurses, nutritionists, dietitians, physical therapists, speech therapists, respiratory care practitioners and child-life specialists.
