Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital Panda Cares Center of Hope

The Panda Cares Center of Hope provides a home away from home for parents and guardians while their child is in the hospital. Located on the 2nd floor of the Outpatient Care Center (OCC), between Registration and the Café, the center is open for our inpatient and outpatient families. 

Panda Cares Center of Hope

At the Center of Hope, families have the opportunity to disconnect from the stress of their child’s medical experience in an environment of rest and relaxation. This is a space where they can grab a snack, complimentary cup of coffee or check e-mail while staying close to their child. 

An adult or legal guardian (18 years or older) must accompany and supervise any child under 14 years old.
