Spending time in the hospital can be a trying experience for anyone, but it's especially difficult for an active child. We have many ways to keep children engaged and entertained during their stay. These are a few activities that your child can take part in at Levine Children’s Hospital.

Special Events

Many of our activities change day-to-day. Ask your nurse or child life specialist for the latest hospital happenings.

Music Therapy

Music therapy can play an amazing role in your child’s healing process. For more information, please call 704-381-2257.

Pet Therapy

For a child in the hospital, interaction with a certified pet therapy dog goes beyond medicine. For more information about our pet therapy program, please call 704-355-2105.

Playrooms and Special Places

We have many playrooms and recreational areas at Levine Children’s Hospital where patients and siblings are welcome to visit with adult supervision. We also have Seacrest Studios, an in-house multimedia broadcast center, in the lobby of the hospital.

Teen Room

Teens and their siblings, 13 years and older, are welcome to visit the teen room, located on the 11th floor. This room is equipped with video games, a computer, a foosball table, a pinball machine and board games.

Bringing the Fun to You

If your child is unable to come to the playroom for activities, a child life specialist, child life assistant or volunteer will bring toys, games and other items to their bedside. Broadcasts of special events in Seacrest Studios and the atrium performance area, as well as hospital bingo, are available live on channel 99.
