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.
