Activity Rooms

The Child Life Department has activity rooms where kids of all ages can play, relax and socialize in a stress-free environment. Children who can't be around other kids, due to immunosuppression or seizure monitoring equipment, can access these rooms by signing up for individual playtime.


The Playroom offers toys, board games, puzzles, books and craft materials for all ages. Brothers and sisters are welcome to visit once they've received a health clearance sticker from a nurse. The Playroom is staffed by child life specialists and trained volunteers.
