Project Update: Pediatric Playdeck Cuts Ribbon on Interiors!
Post by Shelley Pass, NCIDQ
November 6, 2014 - The Baystate Children’s Playdeck project, located at Baystate Medical Center (BMC), in Springfield, MA celebrated interior completion with a ribbon cutting today. The project renovated and reimagined the 2,326 sqft indoor and outdoor play area located in the pediatric inpatient care unit at Baystate Children’s Hospital. The outdoor play area is anticipated to be complete in January 2015.
The Playdeck provides a whimsical retreat geared toward spurring the imaginations of children of all ages. The new layout, millwork, lighting, and finishes were designed through collaboration with the Baystate Children’s Child Life Team and the committee of families and children who use the space. The Playdeck, inside and out, is the dream realized for the Children’s Hospital: Reach, Embrace, Amaze, Care, and Heal.
