Parents, grandparents and children cooking together in the kitchen, sharing recipes and sitting around the table is a lost art in many households.

Longer days mean more time to play! You can’t blame a child for wanting to stay up until the sun goes down, but we know that children need a certain number of hours of restful sleep each night to grow and be healthy. It’s for this reason that it’s important to maintain a reasonable bedtime during the spring and summer months. Here are a few things you can do to help them get to bed on time. http://ow.ly/KTVZE

Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt University
Introduction

Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt is a place of healing and a place of hope for the future. As one of the nation's leading children's hospitals, we treat and help prevent all health issues ranging from colds and broken bones to heart disease and cancer. 

The world-class facilities at Children's Hospital are a testament to our community's dedication to the health of children. Constructed in 2004 and expanded in 2012, our 271-bed hospital is a child-friendly place built on the science of healing.

A building alone does not make a great hospital. Our exceptional medical teams and the generous support of people like you enable us to provide every child who comes to us with the hope of improved health. Children's Hospital is a nonprofit facility. No child who needs our services is denied care on the basis of limited ability to pay.

Many of our doctors and surgeons are nationally recognized researchers who are finding new ways to cure and prevent childhood diseases. Their work preventing and treating premature birth, cancer, heart disease, spina bifida, and many other conditions is an investment in the future. We are at an important crossroads in child health. Our commitment to research and advocacy positions us to bring the promise of good health to children and families in our community and to share that hope with the world.
