In the 5 treatment rooms the Smilezone enhancements include: Fresh Paint, Colorful Murals, iPad on Lockable Medical Stand, 3 Jersey Boxes with 3 Raptors 905 Jerseys, Rolling Storage in Raptors 905 Colours, Raptors 905 Lockers and a new XBox system.
“It is community partnerships like this one that help us to provide the best possible health care
experiences for our patients. These fun and interactive Smilezone spaces allow our youngest patients to focus on
simply being kids, while we focus on their treatment and care.” Alison Quigley, SVP Patient Care Services, Trillium Health Partners
“We are happy to be a part of the newly renovated Paediatric Oncology Unit of Credit Valley
Hospital. This new space will allow for a comfortable and playful space for children and their families while they fight through one of the most difficult times in their lives. We would like to thank SmileZone and Trillium Health
Partners for allowing Raptors 905 to bring more joy to Credit Valley Hospital.” Raptors 905 Vice President Courtney Charles.
