Let’s Pretend Hospital

Let’s Pretend Hospital is an annual event that focuses on introducing kindergarten students from throughout the county to the hospital environment, preparing them for future visits to the hospital as guest or patient without the fear and anxiety that sometimes accompanies a hospital visit or stay.

In addition to an on-site tour, hospital staff provides goody bags and take-home material for parents on the State Children’s Health Insurance Program SCHIP program (Hoosier Healthwise) and the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) available to low/no income families meeting specified income requirements.
