Disney are set to change hospital stays for children as a new initiative, Team of Heroes, works with Disney’s own Imagineers to revolutionise children’s hospitals around the globe.
Addition of a new RFID-based system allowing patients to customize their hospital visit by choosing their favorite Disney stories and characters. The system will also unlock special elements to further personalize and enhance the experience, such as “enchanted” artwork that comes alive.
Themed treatment and patient rooms featuring interactive murals of Disney stories, bed linens and gowns featuring each child’s favorite characters, and personalized in-room entertainment. Also, well stocked mobile “play carts” will include Disney-themed games and activities to give families something to do together to help alleviate stress and boredom.
Disney first-run movies and television shows, available both in-room and in themed pop up movie theaters in the hospital, along with other Disney entertainment options.
Disney customer-experience training for doctors, nurses and staff. Disney Institute will create a customized program for healthcare professionals designed to foster a less stressful, patient and family-centric hospital experience.
No specific word on whether there will be Star Wars content included in this, but given the stellar work of the 501st in hospitals across the world for the last 20 years, it’s highly likely they will bring in characters from the GFFA.
