Delivering Comfort and Inspiration
“Using the powerful combination of our beloved characters and legendary creativity, The Walt Disney Company is working with experts in pediatric healthcare to reimagine the patient experience in children’s hospitals around the world – creating a personalized and engaging atmosphere that will inspire young patients and ease the stress of a hospital stay.”
-Robert Iger, Executive Chairman of The Walt Disney Company
Reimagining the Patient Experience
The Walt Disney Company is delivering comfort and inspiration to children facing serious illness. This commitment dates back to Walt Disney himself, who would visit with children in hospitals, often accompanied by Disney characters and animators.
In 2018, Disney built on this legacy by announcing a $100 million commitment to help reimagine the patient journey in children's hospitals.
When families have a child facing serious illness, they describe the journey as one where they face moments of high anxiety and stress, and feel alone.
Disney is using the best of its storytelling, beloved characters and creativity to create a more personal and comforting experience for children.
