"Learning about Project Pinball and the positive impacts it has on patients and families was appealing.  As we provide extraordinary care to our patients and families, we strive to offer additional ways to make their stay more pleasant and comforting.  Project Pinball's mission is very much aligned with our patient-centered culture.  Children's Hospital & Medical Center is looking forward to the arrival of the Shrek pinball machine and the smiles and fun it will bring to our patients and families," says John Williams.

"We bring joy to children's lives through active play," says Daniel Spolar, Project Pinball Charity's founder and Senior Director, "allowing the smallest patients the opportunity to focus on something other than hospital life."
