Gameroom Give-away!

Microsoft has partnered with Children’s Miracle Network to provide three Children’s Miracle Network pediatric hospitals an Ultimate Gameroom experience – and we need YOUR HELP to decide which three lucky hospitals will receive this great giveaway and better yet, YOU could win an Xbox 360 as well!

Cast your vote for the Children’s Miracle Network hospital of your choice, each time you vote you will be entered to win an Xbox 360 – the more you vote, the better your chances of winning!You can vote up to 10 times per day. If you do not have a Children's Hospital locally, I would love for you to vote for the Children's Hospital of Alabama. We could really use the activity/game room for our patients! We do not have a whole lot to offer in that respect! But our Children's Hospital is considered one of the top in the nation, and our CF Center (which is associated with our UAB CF Center/research center) is one of the leading ones in the country! We have been selected as one of the 2009 recipients of the annual Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Quality Care Award: Recognizing Outstanding QI Processes and Accomplishments.

The Children’s Hospital of Alabama is the 10th busiest pediatric medical center in America with, recording more than 670,000 patient encounters annually. It is home to a state-of-the-art diagnostic center, a Level 1 trauma center, the largest pediatric burn center in the Southeast and is a national leader in many programs including minimally invasive surgery, neurosurgery, nephrology, hematology/oncology, and pulmonology. The research programs conducted here rank in the Top 10 of NIH funding each year. In 2007, it earned the prestigious MAGNET certification and in 2011, will celebrate its 100th birthday.

Thank you for your support! Whether you are voting for the Children's Hospital of Alabama or one located in your state, this is an awesome opportunity!

CHB has game rooms on every floor, or unit, I think. My unit had a game room, a child life room, and a teen room. But the teen room was only open during the week, which left me thinking. So if you're a teenager and it's the weekend, do you have no choice to be bored? It didn't make sense to me (with a PCA & now without one)
