In honor of the Year of Saint Joseph, St. Philip the Apostle Parish invites you to make a donation to the Child Life Department at St. Joseph's Children's Hospital.

About St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital
St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital, part of the St. Joseph’s Health healthcare system, is a nonprofit, State-designated, specialized children’s hospital located on the campus of St. Joseph’s University Medical Center in Paterson, NJ. St. Joseph’s is dedicated to treating the whole child—body, mind, and spirit—from birth to age 21. With 50 pediatric beds and 80 bassinettes, St. Joseph’s admits more than 4,000 infants, children, teens, and young adults each year. Our award-winning nurses and physicians, including 100 pediatric specialists, stand ready to care for every child who walks through our doors.

About St. Joseph’s Child Life Department
The Child Life Department at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital is committed to helping pediatric patients and their families cope with the stress and anxiety associated with hospitalization. This is accomplished by embracing play as a healing modality, preparing pediatric patients for medical procedures, educating children and families about the illness and plan of care, and by providing distraction to patients during painful procedures.

The Child Life Department offers high-impact holistic therapies such as therapeutic play, non-pharmacological pain management, and music therapy which are shown to be highly beneficial in mitigating the negative effects of hospitalization, particularly for patients with chronic, life-threatening or terminal illness. Importantly, these therapies are 100% philanthropically funded. St. Joseph’s does not bill families for the services provided by our Child Life Specialists. We are grateful for your support of St. Joseph's Child Life Department!
