The Zone

Children need a place for fun and laughter. That is especially true while they are recovering from an illness or injury. The Zone was created to help children, teenagers and their families forget—for at least a little while—they are at the hospital.

In The Zone, children, teenagers and their families can relax, watch a movie or play some video games—there are even times when professional athletes from the Atlanta teams stop by to challenge patients to a virtual hockey or baseball game. It is a place where doctors or nurses are allowed—only if they want to play.

There's a little something for everyone at The Zone. Whether you're into music, movies, video games, sports, or crafts, you can keep your hands busy and your thoughts light as you have some fun. And you never know which celebrity may stop by for a visit.
