Healthy Humor Red Nose Docs

Clown Care Doctors

Johns Hopkins Children’s Center partners with the Healthy Humor Red Nose Docs program to enhance the emotional and social well-being of your child and family by providing the comic relief so often needed during a hospital stay.

Working in close association with Child Life Services, the clowns interact with clinical and hospital staff members to relieve each child’s sadness, anxiety, isolation and even pain by diverting his or her attention during medical procedures. Part of a community outreach program of Healthy Humor Red Nose Docs, the clowns visit youngsters throughout the Children’s Center, from the pediatric emergency room to pre- and post-op surgery suites and outpatient clinics, three days each week.
