Featuring a variety of toys from building blocks and puzzles to video games, Austin's Playroom is a safe, cheerful, calming place for children to play with adult supervision while families visit patients.
Located in the Tower lobby, the BHS playroom was generously donated as part of the Austin’s Playroom Project,
an initiative of the Mario Lemieux Foundation
to establish playrooms in medical facilities.
The initiative was created after the premature birth of Mario and Nathalie Lemieux’s son, Austin.
Recognizing the challenges that families face in terms of child care during family medical issues, they launched the initiative, which has raised the funds to establish nearly 30 playrooms across the region.
