The playroom is located on the fifth floor of the medical center to give your child some much deserved time away from their room. If you'd like some directed activities, one of our Child Life specialists can help.
At 65 inches, the TVs in our patient rooms are larger than most — and do more than your average screen, too. Our TVs are digital whiteboards that also offer:
- Interactive features: You can view your care team, access our library of health information and even order your child's food from the menu.
- Videoconferencing: Your doctor can bring in other Cook Children's specialists or family members for virtual discussions of your child's care.
Your MyCookChildren's app is just one more way we help make your stay easier. A meal or a snack is something children look forward to during their stay. With the app, food is just a tap away. Your child's choices are automatically coordinated with their doctors, so only approved foods appear. Your selections go straight to the kitchen and arrive at your child's room at your chosen time.
If your child is admitted to our Prosper medical center, download the app and take a look at all of the helpful things you can do.
