Plan now

Sick child laying in mother's lap

Emergencies happen. Make sure you’re ready.

You do everything you can to keep your kids safe and healthy, but it’s also important to plan for the unexpected. Because it’s a fact of life that no matter how hard you try to prevent emergencies, accidents and illnesses will happen.

At Kentucky Children’s Hospital, we know you don’t want to think about your children EVER needing a hospital. But someday they just might. That’s why we offer the region’s only Level 1 pediatric trauma center and the region’s most advanced medicine especially for children.

When an accident or illness occurs, we’ll be here to help and to get your kids back to being kids as quickly as possible. It’s our promise to you.

You can help by planning now so that you’re ready for the unexpected. Download our free Emergency Plan Template, fill it out, and make copies for your children’s school and other caregivers. Make sure they’re prepared, too, to help your child when he or she needs it.
