Leaders in education

We believe in educating our patients and our local community on important health topics. Here you will find information on our community wellness center, our online patient portal, important forms that you may need, hot topics in children’s healthcare and information on various immunizations.

Penn State PRO Wellness Center

Penn State Children’s Hospital serves as a resource for children and their families in our region, as well as the community as a whole. Our Penn State PRO Wellness Center offers evidence-based programs designed to improve health and promote wellness to young people in the community. Specifically, it is committed to educating and inspiring youth and their families to:

  • Eat well
  • Engage in regular physical activity
  • Become champions for bringing healthy choices to life

My Penn State Hershey Health

Penn State Children’s Hospital offers patients the ability to connect with their doctor online by using a secure website called My Penn State Hershey Health. This online tool allows you to:

  • Manage upcoming appointments
  • Check test and lab results
  • Communicate with your doctor through secure messaging
  • View or print health related documents from home

You can sign up for our online patient portal during an appointment by providing an email address, and our staff will send you an invitation. Any child age 14 to 17 will need to be present and give their written consent for parents to view their health records, and patients over the age of 18 must manage their own account.
