Providing a special environment just for children
addition to our medical team that’s specially trained in pediatric
care, we have created an environment just for children. With brightly
colored wall murals, playrooms, a covered playground and even a movie
theatre, Novant Health Hemby Children's Hospital is a place where
children of all ages will feel comfortable. Our rooms include
amenities that make children feel at home, with a parent’s bed,
private bathroom and kitchen area with a microwave, television, DVD
player and VCR, and an Xbox® video game system.

designed playground lets children who are feeling well enough get

The theatre opened in 2009 with a special grant from Novant Health Foundation Presbyterian Medical Center and

Hemby, we recognize that teenagers are more than just big kids; they
have different emotional needs from that of our younger patients.
That’s why we have created a special place that hospitalized teens
can call their own: the Teen Room. Equipped with a flat-screen
television, movies, video game cubes and board games, this room is a
great place to socialize with other patients their age.
