The Brachial Plexus Center extends care beyond medical treatment to include support services. While a family’s primary concern is the treatment their child will receive, it is both important and comforting to know what to expect whether your child is here for an outpatient clinic appointment or if your child must stay at the hospital.

Guest Services

Guest Services assists families traveling from outside the Cincinnati area in making travel and lodging arrangements when they bring a child to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center for care. Representatives provide information about a variety of services including hotels, rental cars and transportation to and within Cincinnati.

Of course, your first concern while in Cincinnati is the welfare of your child. There are times, however, when you may need to take a break. Guest Services can help families plan activities and take advantage of discounts offered to families by local businesses and organizations. Please contact a Guest Services representative for information about specific activities.

Brachial Plexus Family-to-Family Support

One of the most meaningful sources of support can be another family who has experienced parenting a child with a brachial plexus injury. Connecting with another family can help you to feel more comfortable and optimistic about the future. That’s why we created the Family to Family Program.
