playmobileThe Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital at Hackensack University Medical Center, a member of Hackensack Meridian Health, together with PLAYMOBIL, a leading toy manufacturer since 1974, held a special ribbon-cutting ceremony today to dedicate the new PLAYMOBIL Playroom.  The playroom, dedicated to pediatric patients, is fully equipped with playsets, a life-sized PLAYMOBIL character and themed backdrops from PLAYMOBIL.

“The PLAYMOBIL Playroom will truly be a special place where our pediatric patients can play in a nice bright, vibrant atmosphere and not dwell on their medical procedures,” said Stephen Percy, M.D., acting chairman, Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital at HackensackUMC.

“We are so thankful to PLAYMOBIL for the very generous donation of the play sets, life-size PLAYMOBIL figure and the colorful backdrops.  It is a wonderful gift for our patients and their families to enjoy,” said Jon M. Fitzgerald, president, chief development officer, HackensackUMC Foundation.

“Our hope is that while the children are here at Hackensack University Medical Center, they have a chance to just be kids, have some fun here in this wonderful new playroom, and use their imaginations.  After all, a little ‘PLAY’ goes a long way,” said Mark Cohen, vice president of Sales and Marketing for PLAYMOBIL USA.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony took place at the Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital as patients, families and team members joined with PLAYMOBIL USA members to dedicate the new play area in the outpatient area of the children’s hospital.
