The Play and Activity Unit employs kindergarten teachers, pediatric practical nurses, and youth instructors who work at wards, day centers and in the Day Hospital. Engaging in favorite pastimes such as play, games, and other recreational activities makes it easier to adjust to life in the hospital. Play promotes recovery and rehabilitation for both children and adolescents.

The New Children's Hospital has a play area, which offers children and adolescents of different ages a chance to spend time with their families.
