Banner Thunderbird is happy to provide our pediatric patients a choice of two 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.
We also offer "The Great Escape," an outdoor play area on our lower level for pediatric patients and their siblings. 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 or in isolation, a child life specialist or volunteer will bring toys, games, and other items to the child's bedside.
