Primary Children's Hospital bereavement program supports families after the death of their child. The bereavement coordinator provides grief support to patients, families, and staff. The coordinator is also available to suggest referrals to other programs that may be better suited to specific needs.

Grief Support Groups

We offer support groups two to three times a year for parents and school-age children. The groups run for six weeks and are held at Primary Children’s Hospital on Wednesdays, from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. There is no charge to participate in the groups. Call or email us to register or get more information.

Grief Support Letters

We offer a series of grief support letters to Primary Children's families for a one year period after the death of their child.

Memorial Tribute

In the spring of each year, we host a special program to honor the children who have died at Primary Children's Hospital the previous year. Families who choose to participate are invited to send in a picture of their loved one with special thoughts about that child. These photos are part of a video presentation that is shown at the time of the memorial event. Musical performances and other tributes honor these children and their families. Invitations will be sent out in advance of the Memorial Tribute with further details.
