The Rainbow Channel

Television at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital means more than sitting back and watching, it means becoming a part of the fun! Through the Rainbow Channel, a staff member or guest can join in games with the entire hospital; a child in isolation can enjoy group activities; and a family can interact with and learn from featured guests.

The Rainbow Channel teams with Child Life specialists, Creative Arts therapists and other health care professionals to promote normal growth and development in children who are in the hospital. It provides children and families with a ready source of education, interaction and family-friendly entertainment.
