The Smilezone team got off to a quick start adding SEVEN SMILEZONES at The Scarborough and Rouge Hospital in both their General and Birchmount campuses. The seven new Zones brighten and transformed four separate waiting areas a playroom and an assessment room.
This installation featured beautifully transformed spaces for kids, including:
- Brightly-coloured, fresh paint throughout the Zones
- Custom cabinetry and banquette seating
- A variety of different tactile panels and sensory tables
- An iPad station
- Newly installed TVs
- A new Gesture Tek and activity unit
In all of the murals displayed throughout the Scarborough installation are Bank of Montreal logos, which is of particular importance to Smilezone. This installation marks a very important landmark for Smilezone Foundation as they continue to further their mission and expand throughout Ontario. Bank of Montreal is Smilezone’s largest corporate donor, and thus this Scarborough installation has been dedicated to recognizing BMO’s outstanding contribution.
