- The Children's Center of Pittsburgh Get Well Room—opened January 17, 2012
Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC and Carriage House Children’s Center have teamed up to create the Get Well Room (GWR), a facility providing care to children ages 6 months to 12 years old who are too ill to go to school or day care.
The GWR is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at The Children’s Center of Pittsburgh at 327 Craft Ave. in Oakland. Parents can contact the GWR either the day before or the morning of the day of care to secure their child’s space. Costs are $75 a day for children under age 3 and $55 a day for children ages 3 to 12. A one-time registration fee of $20 is required. Special rates are given if the child has a parent who works for UPMC or the child attends the Children’s Center of Pittsburgh or Carriage House Children’s Center.
For more information on the Get Well Room, contact 412-641-1990.
