PAST PROJECTS:

CHILDREN'S PLAY ROOM AND ADOLESCENT CENTER

Pascale's Pals and the Women and Children's Hospital undertook a $200,000 renovation and remodeling of the Children's Playroom and the Adolescent room. The room for the teens is very high tech and the playroom for the younger kids hopefully helps them forget they are in a hospital for awhile!

REHABILITATION CENTER

With $50,000 from Pascale's Pals, the Women and Children's Hospital celebrated the grand opening of their new Inpatient Pediatric Rehabilitation Center!  Previously, children who needed this treatment had to go to St. Louis or Kansas City.

GAMING CONSOLES

Pascale's Pals initially equipped all pediatric and adolescent rooms at the Women and Children's hospital with flat screen TVs, DVD players and Wii games consoles, with movies and video games checked out at the nurse's station.  NOW we are upgrading with 60 Sony PlayStation 3's, each uploaded with 60 movies and 40 games which can be updated automatically as new movies and games come out!

GO-BABY-GO CARS

Pascale's Pals donated the funds to purchase 20 cars that were given for children with chronic illnesses. They were all reconstructed so that children with a range of disabilities would be able to drive them. This was done in collaboration with the school of occupational therapy. 

NICU RENOVATIONS

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit was renovated with 20 recliners, beds and dressers for parents rooms, and two special rooms for nursing mothers and their babies.

New Soltice Gliders were added to the the NICU, which are more comfortable than the wooden rockers previously furnished.  These new gliders, costing a total of $7,500, provide a perfect spot for mothers to bond with their newborns in a homey-feeling environment.

NICU FAMILY ROOM

The Newborn Intensive Care Unit waiting area was furnished with a living room, kitchen, two flat screen TVs and shower facilities.  For families of babies receiving care in the NICU, the area often becomes their second home over the long days of care, essential for family support.

PATIENT EDUCATION RESOURCES

Multiple types of educational materials have been commissioned by Pascale's Pals. Most recently Pascale's Pals gave the funds to buy coloring books explaining hospital procedures, hospital scrapbooks for the patients and their siblings, NICU books for the siblings to understand what is happening to the newborn, as well as books for parents explaining cystic fibrosis.

MUSIC THERAPY PROGRAM

Pascale's Pals donated $5,000 to provide instruments for the children and therapists in the new music therapy program at the Women and Children's Hospital. 

PASCALE'S PALS PLAYGROUND

The playground was donated by Pascale's Pals in order to provide a place of joy and the opportunity for being outside while at the hospital. 

TJ'S COURTYARD AND PLAYGROUND

The Park and Playground at Women and Children's Hospital was initially built as a collaboration between Pascale's Pals and the University of Missouri. Recently, the T.J.'s Courtyard entrance was created in conjunction with Joe Machens Dealerships and the Department of Child Health. The playground equipment was upgraded and moved to the courtyard location.

VEIN VIEWER

Pascale's Pals has helps purchase technology that minimizes harm and distress to the children. For example, a $60,000 VeinViewer was purchased to allow nurses to better see veins on their small patients, especially useful for babies. Heating pads and thermometers were purchased for newly diagnosed Pediatric Sickle Cell patients.
