KidsTRACK

Nemours Children's Hospital, Lake Nona

Nemours KidsTRACK  (Teaching, Research, Advocacy, Community, Knowledge) is how our family connects to yours. Here, the team helps you find services, information and resources that can make your life a little easier from the time your child is diagnosed and throughout treatment and healing — while at the hospital, to well after you return home.

Located in the hospital lobby, KidsTRACK is a place where you can:
  • learn about and schedule appointments for hospital services, such as care coordination, Child Life services, spiritual care, language interpretation and patient advocacy
  • ask questions and get trusted information about your child’s condition, recent research and treatments
  • participate in meetings and training events, such as our Healthy Choices cooking demonstrations
