Thankful to have a place like Bronson where we receive child and family friendly care

Wendy Kellogg, Family Member

When my six year old daughter learned she was going to have surgery she had lots of questions and was appropriately nervous about the whole process.  I did my best to prepare her, answer her questions, and alleviate as much worry as I could.  We received information from Bronson, specific to kids, that was very helpful.  The surgery preparation video on Bronson’s website was a great way to introduce the process.  Come the day of surgery she said she felt a little scared, but ready.  Upon arrival, everyone we came into contact with did their best to help her feel at ease, and answer her questions.  While I am also a healthcare employee, that day I was able to just her Mom, and for that I am so appreciative.  All the staff, especially the Child Life Specialist and the anesthesiologists took time to talk with her and answer her questions.  I am so thankful that we have a place like Bronson where we can come and receive child and family friendly care.  Thanks to all who make this happen every day!
