Adopt A Room
In the new University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital, customized private rooms designed for kids and their families help improve outcomes and accelerate healing.
Family togetherness promotes healing—just ask a nurse or a parent who has been through a long hospital stay with a child. Our pediatric patients often spend several weeks, even months, in the hospital due to the severity of their illnesses.
That’s why our new University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital features child-centered spaces—Adopt A Rooms—that help improve outcomes and accelerate healing during a child’s hospital stay.
Adopt A Rooms are private, 390-square-foot rooms—35 percent larger than national standards—that address the distinct needs of hospitalized children and their caregivers, including:
- an increased sense of privacy
- a decreased risk of infection
- keeping families connected, no matter the distance
- an enhanced sense of control over the child’s environment
- comfort and ability to heal
- balance between caregiver and family needs
- distracting activities when needed
Adopt A Rooms help meet these needs with special features for kids and their families.
Each Adopt A Room is available for sponsorship by an individual or company as a significant way to honor an individual, organization, family, or group. Gifts to Adopt A Room will equip and enhance patient rooms today for revolutionary comfort and care and sustain those rooms for decades to come.
