My Little Waiting Room

Imagine you’re a parent needing to go to a medical appointment, or wanting to visit a patient in the hospital, and you have no choice but to bring your child with you. What if there was a place in the hospital where you could drop off your child, knowing he or she would experience a safe, fun environment created just for kids? 

On April 5, 2013, Providence Portland Medical Center will celebrate the opening of My Little Waiting Room.  In 2010, Providence St. Vincent Medical Center opened the first-ever My Little Waiting Room, a professionally staffed center that provides free drop-in child care on site.  The results have been outstanding. In the nearly three years it has been open, My Little Waiting Room at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center has had more than 12,500 visits.

Imagine being able to focus all your attention when the doctor or nurse walks into the room to discuss your or a loved one’s condition. Imagine not missing a vital piece of health information. Imagine being able to ask questions and have a conversation without interruptions. Imagine My Little Waiting Room.

If you’d like to learn more about My Little Waiting Room and how you can help, please contact the foundation office at 503-215-6020. Help us bring this much-needed program to the Providence Portland campus in 2012.
