A Visit to Hospital-Land

The Visit to Hospital-Land program is coming back for the 2024-25 school year!

Please complete the form below if you are interested in receiving updated information about the program.

Sponsored by Crouse Health, a Visit to Hospital-Land was established in 1976 and provides an educational opportunity for first and second-grade students to learn what a stay at Crouse Hospital, or any hospital, would be like.

  • The 90-minute course is designed to help educate children and decrease fears about hospitalization.
  • Classes are taught by an RN who will lead the children through a pretend tonsillectomy. The children are able to express their feelings around hospitalization while learning about the healthcare professionals they may encounter.
  • Students will role play a patient, parent, doctor or nurse to experience handling various equipment, including a hospital bed, wheelchair and stretcher.
  • Upon completion of the course, students receive a goodie bag and certificate, along with a patient I.D. bracelet with their name on it.
  • Over 9,000 classes have been held, allowing nearly 206,000 children to participate from 80-90 schools in and around Onondaga County
