Disney | Overview
When your child is sick, they want comfort and familiarity. As one of the nation’s top-ranked pediatric hospitals, Boston Children’s Hospital is committed to making sure that all of our patients and their families feel safe, comfortable, and cared for. We accomplish this through our exceptional clinical care and dedication to finding answers for families. But we also know that kids just want to be kids.
That’s why we’re collaborating with The Walt Disney Company. We believe that Disney’s initiative in support of children’s hospitals is a natural fit for Boston Children’s. Read on to learn more about the ways we’re working with Disney to make the hospital journey even more engaging, personal, and interactive.
Disney's commitment to children's hospitals
The Walt Disney Company is committed to delivering comfort and inspiration to children facing serious illness. This commitment dates back to Walt Disney himself, who would visit with children in hospitals, often accompanied by Disney characters and animators.
In 2018, Disney built on this legacy by announcing a $100 million commitment to help reimagine the patient journey in children's hospitals.
When families have a child facing serious illness, they describe the journey as one where they face moments of high anxiety and stress, and feel alone.
Disney is using the best of its storytelling, beloved characters and creativity to create a more personal and comforting experience for children.
