Throughout the year, the Department of Patient and Family Centered Care at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital helps to support patients and families as they cope with illness, injury, treatment, and hospitalization.
On Saturday, Dec. 11 and Sunday, Dec. 12 our Department of Patient and Family Centered Care will be hosting our annual All Kids' Wonderland. This is a free "shopping" event for our inpatient parents/caregivers as well as families identified by our Social Work department who demonstrate a need to participate. As the Department’s largest event, All Kids’ Wonderland is estimated to serve 250+ families. The Outpatient Care Center is transformed to become an environment where families can embrace normalcy and the joys of the holiday season without being far from their loved ones who are receiving care. In designated rooms, gifts are on display so that each family will have an opportunity to "shop" and pick up toys and gift wrap essentials.
All Kids’ Wonderland is intended to remove some additional stress from families who are already facing numerous challenges during this time of year. Perhaps more than ever, there’s a need for our patients and families to experience as much “normal” as possible as they celebrate their holiday traditions.
