Family Resource Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital

Peds News

The Family Resource Center (FRC) at St. Louis Children’s Hospital is a pediatric health information library with consumer-friendly resources for families and the community. By offering families the opportunity to learn about their child’s health condition, the FRC enables them to make well-informed decisions and become full partners with their child’s health care team.

The FRC opened in 1999. With a staff of pediatric nurses and a librarian from the Becker Library, families receive both up-to-date information and personalized service.

The FRC is open to the public. All services are designed with convenience in mind. Clients may borrow materials from the library or use the business center services: computer, fax, copier, laptop hookups, etc. For families or caregivers who have specific questions about their child’s health, a customized packet of information can be sent to their home or delivered to their child’s bedside. All services are free of charge.

The FRC has materials on topics ranging from asthma and diabetes to family life issues and safety. The collection includes material appropriate for children, teens and adults and addresses literacy issues as well. Books, brochures, DVDs and consumer health databases are all available in the FRC.
