It is my privilege to help pediatric patients and their families navigate the hospital experience

Miranda Ray, child life specialist

When pediatric patients come to the hospital, they are often experiencing sights, sounds, textures and scents which may be unfamiliar and scary. As a child life specialist at Bronson Battle Creek, it is my privilege to help pediatric patients and their families navigate the hospital experience. From the Emergency Department to the Surgery Department, I am here to support patients and their families in building coping strategies, to prepare and support youth during procedures, and to engage young children in medical play. The children and families of the Battle Creek community are resilient, and it is my honor to help them shine.
