At Cohen Children's Medical Center we understand the importance of making your child's stay as stress-free as possible. To help meet the various developmental needs of our pediatric patients and their families and to offer a place to play or just hang-out, each inpatient unit has a playroom or dayroom. These rooms are filled with familiar items such as board games, toys, movies, books, art and craft activities, computers and video games that help create a calming environment for patients and families.

Our playrooms and dayrooms are free from medical exams and procedures, to serve as a comfortable space for children to come play, relax and socialize with other children. Medical procedures are restricted to our treatment rooms, and medical discussions are restricted to our patient rooms. Children visiting these areas must be medically cleared prior to coming in. The Child Life Team will bring games, toys and activities to children who are not medically cleared to come to our playrooms and dayrooms. To protect our patients and visitors, all of our toys, games and supplies are cleaned according to our strict infection control policies. All of our Activity Centers are available seven days a week for day and some evening programming.
