White Cloud, a Children's Miracle Network Hospitals partner, asked, “How would you bring comfort to the kids at your hospital?” in their Real Comfort, Real Kids video contest. Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital, your local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, responded with, “We want a playground!”
Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital received the highest number of votes and was awarded a $30,000 prize to help begin the playground project.

On Thursday, Sept. 17, White Cloud presented a $30,000 check to Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital in recognition of their winning video. The event also served as a groundbreaking ceremony for the playground. Patients of Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital as well as hospital and foundation leaders, led the celebration with donors and supporters.
"This incredible gift from White Cloud will help us create the safe outdoor play space we've been dreaming of," said Christy Fink, Child Life manager, Palmetto Health Children's Hospital. "Playing is a vital part of the healing process for our patients. With the new playground, even our sickest children can play, using specially designed equipment that will accommodate IV poles, wheelchairs and hospital beds. It's exciting to know our families can be with their children in a normal play environment."
