    Kentucky Children's Hospital is dedicated to special care and treatment of every child. We have an enthusiastic staff with specialists in every department to make sure your child receives the best possible care. We know a visit to the hospital can be scary, so we built the Stitches Web site to help you and your child better understand what goes on at Kentucky Children's Hospital.

    Check out Stitches' Game Room for fun activities, Web sites and games for your child. We encourage you and your child to sit down and explore our Web site together. At the bottom of the page you will find health care Web sites designed specifically for you and your children.

    Knowledge is power

    The more your child knows about his or her body, the better we can help them get healthy! Kentucky Children's Hospital is dedicated 100% to our kids. Every member of the Care Team (that means doctors, nurses and counselors) specializes in helping kids.Stitches the artist 

    Our rooms are set up with almost everything children need to feel at home. The children have their own private room with a TV and phone. While in the hospital, kids can check their e-mail, make their own Web site and chat online with kids in hospitals all over the country, even the world! There is also a teacher who will help make sure your child doesn't fall behind in school. Want to know more?  Take a tour of the hospital > 

    If you do make a visit to the hospital, you will receive a survey after you leave. Your feedback is very important to us. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to complete and return the survey, so we can make visits to the hospital a better experience for all Kentucky children.

    Thank you!
