Our Work with Children’s Hospitals

Starlight delivers programs to over 800 children’s hospitals and medical facilities across the US.

Since 1982, Starlight’s programs have been placed in children’s hospitals and medical facilities around the country, impacting more than 17 million seriously ill kids.

We work with our network of children’s hospitals to bring innovative and inspiring programs like Starlight Virtual Reality, Starlight Hospital Wear, and Starlight Gaming to their patients.

For as little as $19 per month, you can help deliver happiness to over 200 hospitalized kids this year.

The Impact

Healthcare professionals at children’s hospitals across the country know how important it is to normalize a child’s hospital experience and still allow sick kids to be kids, and that’s where Starlight comes in.

Starlight’s programs are designed to entertain, distract, and provide comfort to a seriously ill child when they are going through some of life’s most difficult moments.

Starlight brings a smile to our patients and normalizes the environment in their most anxious hour.
