Update: The Family Resource Center is currently undergoing a transformation to bring enhanced services to our patient families.  Currently, the center is closed for drop-in appointments.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

During this transition, the Family Resource Center will be supporting families in the following ways.

  • For an improved patient experience, movies and videos games will be available via a volunteer cart on three east, three west and Almost Home during the day. All of these units will also have a variety of movies and videos games replenished daily.

  • Requests for information, including community resources and medical information, can still be made.  Families should complete our information request form and have it sent through inner-office mail Attn: Family Resource Center or through email to FRC@childrensdayton.org.

  • Access to the copy machines, fax machine and computers for patient family use will be limited.  We encourage families to call (937) 641-3700 before stopping down.

  • Requests for car seat checks and cribs can still be made by calling (937) 641-3700.
