PLAYTIME manufactures custom-themed, soft play areas that are ADA-design compliant and ASTM-certified antibacterial to ensure a healthy, inclusive play environment. The company has installed soft play areas at Hasbro Children’s Hospital, Baton Rouge Medical Centers, Ronald McDonald House, Titus Regional Medical Center, Gigi’s Playhouse Down Syndrome Awareness Center, and many others.

Todd Kreinbrink, PLAYTIME’s healthcare specialist, says, “Many hospitals also sponsor play areas at nearby shopping centers to promote healthy play as well as the hospital’s brand. The play areas provide exposure to potentially millions of shoppers each year as they also allow the hospitals to host wellness events for the community.”

For example, the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia sponsored a play area at nearby King of Prussia Mall.

"CHOP is proud to partner with King of Prussia Mall to provide a fun space that promotes healthy habits and nurtures kids’ imaginations,” said Madeline Bell, CHOP president and chief operating officer. "We are dedicated to serving families and children in the communities surrounding Philadelphia through our extensive Care Network of primary and specialty care offices.”
