N.C. Children's Hospital Play Facilities: Play facilities, including the Play Atrium, The Teen Activity Center, the Music Room and the play-waiting areas, provide pediatric patients with a healing environment where a variety of opportunities are provided to assist children to adjust to hospitalization and to continue normal development. To provide safe and therapeutic play opportunities, play facilities are supervised by professional staff who also assess and provide children with specialized interventions to address play needs.

The Charles Goren Music Room: The Music Room affords patients in the N.C. Children's Hospital and their immediate families an opportunity to express themselves or continue their interest in playing musical instruments in the hospital environment. The equipment in this room also aids in the healing process by allowing self-expression. With the supervision of a full-time Senior Child Life Specialist and a part-time music therapist, children can create music CDs or individualized relaxation, hypnosis, story or guided imagery tapes to assist in the management of pain, stress or anxiety.
