Chase Partnership Expands Child Life Services


The nationally recognized Child Life Program at Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA has partnered with The Chase Foundation to expand and enhance child life services for hospitalized pediatric patients. The program, now known as the Chase Child Life Program, helps address the unique needs of pediatric patients by promoting effective coping through play, preparation, education and self-expression activities. Established in 1968, UCLA ’s child life program was one of the first of its kind in the country and continues to be a model for other medical centers.
