Since 1990, Starlight, through our Starlight Sites program, has been transforming hospital areas into colorful, entertaining oases that can be enjoyed by young patients and their families. These playrooms, teen lounges and playgrounds offer a variety of diversions, including video games, computers, toys, crafts, music, and best of all, the company of other children.
La Rabida Children’s Hospital
We are thrilled to announce that thanks to our partner, the Joy in Childhood Foundation, we created a new Starlight Site at La Rabida Children’s Hospital in Chicago, IL. Now, sick kids at one of the Windy City’s leading pediatric facilities have a state-of-the-art kitchen right in the hospital. They and their families can prepare meals together, feel a little more at home, and even fit in much-needed occupational therapy. This Starlight Site was unveiled on June 18, 2018, where the Joy in Childhood Foundation also announced their new commitment to create 10 Starlight Sites in children’s hospitals nationwide through their $1.5 million partnership with Starlight.
