St. Mary’s Hospital for Children believes that your home is the best place for your child, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. We want you to know that even though we can’t be together with your child, our patient, we want to help you navigate this crisis. Our medically complex children are vulnerable to infectious diseases and St. Mary’s is taking extraordinary measures to ensure that our children, their families, and our staff are safe.
Our heroic staff has dedicated themselves to providing St. Mary’s Kids with the highest level of protection during this challenging time. While we are separated and maintaining our social distance, we are not far from each other. Our dedicated teams have created videos we feel will help you in caring for your loved one.
If your child eats a diet of modified texture solids and you have no idea what to feed them, have no worries! Rishma Kissoon from St.Mary’s Center for Pediatric Feeding Disorders will demonstrate how you can create a nutritious meal for your loved one.
