Gift Shop and Volunteer Update
For the health of our patients, families, volunteers, staff and the community, Children’s Gift Shop remains open for window shopping, phone orders and online orders.
Patient families may still place orders by phone, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 1 to 5 p.m., by calling 402-955-4150 and paying by credit card. Shop our Virtual Holiday Pop-up Store here or visit our online gift shop:
Also, volunteers will no longer be actively volunteering at the hospital effective March 18. Watch for more information regarding alternative options for making gift shop purchases.
Children’s Food Service team is making adjustments to normal operating procedures to ensure the safety of our families and employees. We have implemented the following changes in the cafeteria:
- All food will now be served by Food Service staff from behind the counter. There will be no self-serve options.
- To facilitate this change, we will be adjusting the menu to include what we can fit behind the counter. Many items, including pizza and soft-serve ice cream, will be temporarily unavailable.
- The menu will be determined on a daily basis. Weekly online menus will not be available during this time.
- Seating in the cafeteria will be limited. If you choose to eat in the cafeteria, please be advised that we are limiting the number of people who may be seated in an area at a given time. We want to keep two people per table as much as possible.
We expect to make further changes in the cafeteria in response to this rapidly evolving situation. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding.
We want your hospital visit to be comfortable and convenient. That’s why Children’s Hospital & Medical Center offers a variety of amenities and services to patients and families.
WiFi is available throughout Children’s. Look for the “guest” network and any prompts to connect that appear on your device. No login or password is needed to connect to the guest WiFi network.
