• “We feel very fortunate to have donors who want to support the needs of hospitalized children. And through their generosity we have been able to secure not one, not two, but four Touch2Play systems. Two table top versions enhance our pediatric ER waiting room and the touch screens are in constant use!”
Because of the success of the table top versions, we needed to have the same opportunities for our inpatient population and therefore received donations to purchase two bedside Touch2Plays.
The bedside Touch2Plays have been a great source of distraction, especially for those kids who are in isolation and unable to participate in group playroom activities.” — Katie H, CCLS, Coordinator of Child Life Services
“Thanks to a grant, our emergency waiting room features two Touch2Play Pro game systems. We are getting great feedback from our patients and staff!”
—Ashley B., CHRISTUS St. Elizabeth Emergency Room
• “We love our Touch2Play units. They are wildly popular with our patients of all ages, and their families as well. We’ve had them for 2 years now, and never had any problems. I would buy them again in a heartbeat.” –Teresa S., Child Life Services, Rochester General Hospital, Rochester, NY
• “We love it, [the Touch2Play]! We have had patients and siblings spend a lot of time playing on it. I have to say that we have also found a lot of dads playing it without their kiddos in the playroom even. So it is a huge hit! Thank you so much for the coordination of it all. Thank you!”
