Music Therapy Program

Golisano Children’s Hospital employs a board-certified music therapist. The music therapy program, which is fully funded by philanthropy, is offered at no charge to families. By incorporating music into a child's treatment plan, they become less anxious, begin to understand what is going on and take an active role in their healing. By supporting the Music Therapy Program, you are providing comfort and support to a child and their family during one of the most stressful times in their lives.

What's new at Golisano?

Here at Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida the care of our patients is truly a top priority. Stay tuned to hear from Program Development Coordinator Alyssa Bostwick about current priorities and what they mean for your family’s care.

"Golisano Children’s Hospital of SWFL is excited to announce that we now provide advanced X-ray studies for pediatric urology concerns right here in our Pediatric Procedural Sedation Unit. This advanced X-ray is called Urodynamics, and it helps physicians better understand a patient’s bladder function and the underlying urologic issue behind their urinary problems. It helps our physician experts view urine flow as it happens using colored dye. The real-time view enables them to identify issues and develop a treatment plan with the parents at the time of testing, right at the child’s bedside. That means you come into the testing with questions and leave the same day with answers and a plan. The testing’s location in the Pediatric Procedural Sedation Unit gives you direct access to a dedicated Child Life Specialist, who provides support and distraction for patients undergoing the procedure, as well as the availability of sedation if needed. Having the highly trained specialists from Child Life there to explain the procedure in ways they can understand gives them confidence, and their ability to distract patients during the procedure is essential to a successful study and compassionate care."
