Kids Advisory Board

The Kids Advisory Board (KAB) gives a voice to children treated at the hospital. Members also share with the hospital what is important to children, teens and siblings during healthcare experiences. It is similar to a student council, but for the hospital. Currently, 10 KAB members between the ages of 11 and 17 have had significant experiences with us.

The mission of the Kids Advisory Board is to recommend change that positively affects patient care here. This is accomplished by:

  • Providing kids an opportunity to voice their opinions, and help make the hospital more "kid-friendly"
  • Providing the hospital with feedback, suggestions and ideas about topics that are relevant to the hospital and patient care
  • Contributing to making the hospital an even better place for kids
  • KAB members feel extremely empowered because their suggestions and ideas have a real impact on the care and services that we provide
