Playrooms

At Akron Children's, we know that hospitalization can be a frightening prospect for you and your child. That's why we've created a calm, engaging environment that nourishes and soothes.

Our Akron and Beeghly campuses have age-appropriate playrooms and activity rooms on every unit for children and teens. The playrooms and activity rooms offer your child an unstructured atmosphere where she can express herself and just have fun. They include toys, video games, board games, movies and books. For teens, there's even a pool table.

Playrooms are supervised by child life specialists, assisted by volunteers and college child life students.
