Activity Centers for Young Children and Teens

The Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) offers multiple activity centers for young children and teens

Child Life Centers

Two separate playrooms, one located in our pediatric unit and the other located in our pediatric hematology/oncology unit, are open to pediatric patients for therapeutic art and play sessions. These “safe rooms” offer patients the opportunity to express feelings about the hospital in a non-threatening environment. No procedures, exams or medical treatments are permitted in the centers.

Hematology/Oncology Unit Playroom

The Teen Lounge

The Teen Lounge is the center of activity for the adolescent unit. This special unit provides entertainment for teens only.

Activities are geared to teen interests. There is also a television, stereo, DVD player, video games, game table and computer.
