The University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital is designed to create a soothing atmosphere of healing — and play — for children and their families.

The hospital's many play spaces offer safe, fun-filled places of refuge where no medical procedures are performed.

On the first floor of Comer Children's, our large, sun-filled playroom creates a dynamic play space for children and their families, including:

  • Playroom, a central play space for young children
  • Teen room, a private space for teens ages 11 and older
  • A family resource library

Additional play spaces are located throughout the hospital near patient rooms, within the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) and within the pre-op/recovery area. There also is an interactive outdoor space on the first floor adjacent to the playroom.
