Inaugural Playroom

We finished construction in the inaugural playroom in June 2021 at Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. The room is being utilized by families hospitalized at OhioHealth. Our second family playroom is set to open at OSUCC-The James on November 29, 2023. There is child life specialist programming associated with the second family playroom.

Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
