The NEO Kids Children’s Treatment Centre (CTC) will hold a special grand opening celebration of a new Smilezone in the CTC gymnasium on Thursday, Dec. 13.
Generously donated by the Smilezone Foundation, the gymnasium where patients participate in therapy-related activities received a bright, fun, child-friendly makeover.
"Smilezone believes that every child deserves to smile, no matter what circumstances they face," said a news release from NEO Kids.
"Over a single weekend, the Smilezone team transforms an existing waiting room, treatment room or patient care room into a Smilezone."
A Smilezone provides a bright, comforting, and engaging space for children and their families while spending time in a hospital or medical facility.
The grand opening celebration will begin at 10:30 a.m. on Dec. 13 in the NEO Kids Children’s Treatment Centre at Health Sciences North.
