Every day, Certified Child Life Specialists (CCLS) at Winthrop-University Hospital address the unique emotional and developmental needs of young patients through supervised play, recreation, education and emotional support. Thanks to generous funding by the Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation, Winthrop has expanded its renowned Child Life Program with the addition of another part-time CCLS position at Winthrop's Pediatric Specialty Care Center.
The Foundation also donated two new Nintendo Wii Fun Centers to the Hagedorn Pediatric Inpatient Center at Winthrop. Each entertainment center features a flat-panel television, DVD player and a Nintendo Wii Game System to help alleviate feelings of anxiety and fear during children's hospitalization.
Over the past 10 years, Starlight's Pediatric Hospital Support Program has supported the Child Life Program at Winthrop with approximately $160,000 in grants.
