Hasbro Children's Hospital was designed not only by architects, but also by doctors, nurses and support staff—and by the community. People came together for the dream that was Hasbro Children's—and today, the dream is realized in a hospital that is a child friendly place, with lively and colorful murals and lots of programs that help reassure and soothe children. Most importantly, though, it is a place of healing.
