Starlight Fun Center mobile entertainment units are equipped with the latest gaming system, providing bedside entertainment and bringing the healing power of play to pediatric patients.
For children facing surgery, enduring long outpatient treatments or fighting loneliness after hospital visiting hours have ended, Starlight Fun Center units provide a comforting break and fun distraction.
Nurses, physicians, Child Life Specialists and parents report back to Starlight that the system greatly improves the experience of hospitalization for their children.
"This morning, a six year old patient who has had problems with breathing treatments allowed the respiratory therapist to complete his treatment while he was playing on a Starlight Fun Center system. He truly did not notice the therapist or breathing mask!”
- Cindy, Nurse Manager and Cathy, Child Life Coordinator
