Children’s Waiting Room

CWR logo

Military medical facilities often discourage bringing children to a family member’s medical appointment. The Armed Services YMCA’s Children’s Waiting Room offers an onsite solution by furnishing a safe and nurturing environment for military children while their parent or sibling attends a medical appointment.

This program houses locations at Tripler Army Medical Center, as well as, Schofield Army Medical Clinic and is available to children six weeks to twelve years of age. Coordinators at each location prepare craft activities, centers for free play, outdoor play, and movies for children to enjoy. Drop-ins are accepted, although reservations are strongly recommended.  For appointments, please call Tripler at 433-3270 and Schofield at

The Children’s Waiting Room increases accessibility to medical appointments for military family members. Medical personnel, hospital support staff and parents appreciate this service that allows children to wait comfortably for their loved one to receive the care they need.

$10 for up to two children for two hours.
$15 for three or more children for two hours.
