Our Foundation is excited to announce that our next Smilezone installation will be at Mount Sinai Hospital!
The new fun and engaging Zone will be installed in the Hospital’s Family Waiting Room within the existing Slaight Family Labour & Delivery Unit. Almost 7,000 babies are born each year at Mount Sinai, and many of those births are high-risk, putting pressure on families, including children.
“It will be great to have a space where families can really relax in our new, state-of-the-art labour and delivery unit,” said Dr. Mathew Sermer, Obstetrician & Gynaecologist-in-Chief at Mount Sinai Hospital. “We’re very grateful for the support of Smilezone Foundation and Mr. Williams.”
Jerome Williams of the Toronto Raptors helped us share this exciting news on February 6th 2015, before attending his Bobblehead night game at the Air Canada Centre.
“I’m really humbled and honoured to have this Smilezone themed for me,” said Mr. Williams, a Smilezone supporter and father of two children born at Sinai. “My family had such a great experience here, and this project really reflects what I hold dear – the happiness of kids. I’ve seen first-hand the impact that a Smilezone can have, and I’m proud to lend my name to this initiative.”
Installation scheduled for Spring 2015 so stay tuned for updates 🙂
