Pediatric Burn Services

Realizing that pediatric burn patients have special needs, these patients are treated in the Children’s Medical Center by specially trained pediatric staff.

Child life therapists help children and their families cope with the hospital experience and provide honest information at the child’s level of understanding. Age-appropriate play and activities are organized and children are encouraged to participate at their own pace.

TGH is fortunate to have a certified Hillsborough County school teacher at the hospital who enables children to catch up on their schoolwork while hospitalized.

Furnished by a generous donation from the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Lightning Playroom gives kids a stress-free place to play and socialize with other kids. No medical procedures are permitted in the playroom!
