In addition to the services provided by the child-life specialists, children on the pediatric unit in St. John's Children's Hospital have two places where they can leave their hospital room and simply play - the pediatric playroom and outdoor healing garden.

The pediatric playroom is full of toys, games, arts and crafts, coloring books and more. It was recently renovated thanks to a generous donation from the Starlight Children's Foundation.

The outdoor healing garden is located on the 5th floor of St. John's Children's Hospital, right outside the pediatric playroom. It gives children and their families a unique setting to enjoy time outside to play or for quiet reflection.
