For the past seven years, Harbor Hospital Center has offered an alternative to missing a day's work with the Sick Child Day Care Service.

The program, available weekdays from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., accepts children of all ages for $4 per hour.

It is staffed by a hospital child life specialist who tailors activities to a child's age and sickness.

A registered nurse from the Pediatrics Department is available to administer prescription drugs from parents.

Parents may register their children in advance, but they must call one to two hours before taking their child to the center.

A registered nurse will determine if the child's illness makes him or her unacceptable for the program.

Information: 347-3243.
