My Penn State 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 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.
