Playrooms are designed to be efficiently wheeled from one room to the next, serving a great number of patients.
Mobile Playrooms are hospital grade carts, custom-built for the Foundation based on strict specifications.
Mobile playrooms are customized to meet the needs of each hospital based on its patient population.
Operation/supervision of the hospital playrooms typically are restricted by the availability of any hospital’s human & economic resources! When Oscar was hospitalized it became obvious pretty quickly that most children do not follow the schedule of playroom hours.
There are times when the children, due to their diagnosis, medical condition or treatment are unable to leave their bed / room and go to the traditional playroom, thus completely missing the opportunity to engage in play even if limited.
We discovered that of 5,500+ hospitals throughout the US, few facilities have a playroom available at all and children are left to find entertainment on their own.
If you are a healthcare provider seeking to offer a Mobile Playroom to your patients , or
