WICHITA, Kan. -
The Project Pinball charity dedicated a new pinball machine to Wesley Children's Hospital.
The hospital stated pinball machines have shown to motivate young patients to get back on their feet, as well as provide a respite and entertainment for family and staff.
"Our patients and families often face many challenges during their hospital stay and we know laughter can sometimes be the best medicine," said Angi Gragg, Wesley Children's Hospital director of pediatrics. "We hope it will bring smiles and laughs and get more children out of their beds to play."
The charity provides all the equipment, parts and regular maintenance on the machines at no cost to the hospital. Wesley stated the charity has placed 28 machines throughout the US in children's hopsitals and Ronald McDonald Houses.
