  • Radiology Family-Centered Care Committee

    The Radiology Family-Centered Care Committee at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center was formed in January 2009.

    It is composed of families that have been served by the Radiology Department. Our multidisciplinary staff includes technologists, a radiologist, nurses, a Child Life specialist, a patient and family advocate, division managers and an administrative manager.

    We encourage feedback from families to help us provide the best possible care for our patients.
