Lights, Camera, Action!
Those aren’t words you’d expect to hear in a hospital, much less one serving children, but for the past 10 years they can be heard every day, seven days a week at Kravis Children’s Hospital at Mt. Sinai.
KidZone TV is their in-house pediatric broadcast studio, which we have supported through our Pediatric Hospital Support Program. Patients can tune in 24 hours a day and programming includes three live shows each day.
“One of the most important parts of the studio is that the live shows are interactive, so patients who are in their rooms can actually call from their phones and speak with guests in the studio,” shared Child Life Specialist and Zone Clinical Coordinator Cheryl Strauss. On a recent visit, our Gala honoree, Sush Torgalkar, co-hosted their Disney trivia call in show, in which winners would have one of our cuddly Bears delivered to their bedside.
