Communicate with Family and Friends through a Free Personalized Patient Website

CaringBridge create a site

The University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital has teamed up with CaringBridge.org to offer patients and their families a free and simple way to communicate with family and friends during hospitalization, treatment and recovery. Patients can create a secure, personalized CaringBridge website that includes the following:

  • A patient care journal to update family and friends
  • A guestbook where visitors can post messages
  • A photo gallery with slide show functionality
  • Mobile access: View and update a CaringBridge site using an Android phone, iPhone or another Web-enabled smartphone. Friends and family members can also sign up to receive text message journal notifications to their phone.
  • Facebook Connect: Log in with your Facebook account, add a link to your Facebook page from your CaringBridge site or post journal notifications to Facebook. You decide if you want to link the two accounts.
  • Free online support
