Centre For Child And Youth Digestive Health

McMaster Children’s Hospital

In the Fall of 2010, McMaster Children’s Hospital will open the newly constructed the Centre for Child and Youth Digestive Health. The CC&YDH will house all the Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition services in new clinic space located between the red and yellow elevators on McMaster’s 3rd floor corridor. The Centre will feature new waiting and reception areas, new nurses and dietitians offices, a Feeding and Swallowing (FAST) Team assessment room, 5 clinic and counseling rooms.

Kids Dig Health Program

As part of the new clinic, we have developed the KIDS DIG HEALTH PROGRAM. Through this program we will offer timely information and education about nutrition, healthy active living and chronic GI diseases. An e-bulletin will be available upon request and the Kids Dig Health Website will feature education and links to other useful websites and resources


Hopes Wishes and Dreams Educational CD.

For three years, McMaster’s Pediatric IBD Team has distributed an educational CD entitled Hopes Wishes and Dreams to all IBD patients and their families. This program is also introduced to all kids hospitalized with Crohn’s and Colitis at McMaster on Upopolos – the unique hospital intranet! Let us know, if you haven’t received Hope, Wishes and Dreams and we’ll get you a free copy.
