Patient- and Family-Centered Care
We believe parents are essential members of their child’s care team, and that your child is best served by directly involving you and your family throughout your child’s treatment. Our medical team will answer all of your questions and help you to make informed decisions about your child’s care. We encourage you to ask questions and we will have open, honest discussions with you regarding your child’s plan of care.
All of the equipment and services in our hospital are designed especially for children. Our 259-bed hospital is designed to provide an ideal healing environment for your child. Nearly every patient room is an individual room, giving families privacy and a calm, quiet environment.
We strive to help our patients and their families feel as comfortable as possible during their stay. Our Child Life specialists use developmental, educational and therapeutic interventions and play to help patients and their families cope with illness, injury, treatment and hospitalization. Our team works closely with families and health care staff to support each child’s physical and emotional needs during their medical experience. We also offer spacious rooms and playrooms, made-to-order meals especially for children, sunny terraces and comfortable spaces, and computers for patients’ and parents’ use.
In many areas of the hospital, parents can choose to stay overnight in their child's room. Three houses operated by Ronald McDonald Children’s Charities also offer modern hotel-style rooms available on our campus for a small daily fee. A member of our international patient coordinator team can assist you with these reservations.

Johns Hopkins All Children’s is working with The Nightwatch Foundation to bring best practices to hospitals in Central America and the Caribbean. The hospital spearheads the educational component of the program, training nurses in essential low-cost practices proven to have a strong positive impact on the survival rate of pre-term babies.
Our pilot program is the first step to reducing neonatal mortality in these highly affected areas. The course focuses on enhancing nurses’ technical skills and knowledge of patient- and family-centered care. The first class in 2018 trained nine neonatal nurses from three hospitals in Guatemala City.
