Banner Thunderbird is happy to provide our pediatric patients a choice of three playrooms, where they can be kids again.
Our playrooms are "safe" zones where no medical procedures are performed. Our bright, colorful rooms are filled with toys, games, art supplies, and much more. They offer our pediatric patients a little bit of relief from being a patient.
Our playrooms are also supervised with an adult who can help children get the most out of their activities.
We also offer "The Great Escape" ,a pediatric therapeutic outdoor play area on our lower level and for pediatric patients only. It's a good place for children to get some sunshine and fresh air.
If a child is too ill to come to the playroom for activities, a child life specialist or volunteer will bring toys, games, and other items to the child's bedside.
