THE RYAN SEACREST FOUNDATION has selected THE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL OF PHILADELPHIA as its newest site for the construction of THE VOICE, an interactive closed circuit broadcast multi-media center. THE VOICE provides young patients within THE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL OF PHILADELPHIA community with an outlet to engage in activities related to radio, TV and new media, ranging from broadcasting like a disc jockey and playing their favorite songs to watching live artists perform and interviewing celebrities.
"Throughout my 20-year career in the entertainment business, I've toured many hospitals and have consistently been amazed by the courage of children and their families in light of the hardships they face," said SEACREST, who recently launched THE RYAN SEACREST FOUNDATION, a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for seriously ill and injured children through unique programs that utilize multimedia and interactive platforms to enlighten, entertain and educate.
SEACREST continues, "Recognized as one of the best children's hospitals in the country, I am thrilled to bring our program to THE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL OF PHILADELPHIA. Not only is THE CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL OF PHILADELPHIA leading pediatric clinical and research innovation, it is a national leader in developing techniques to support the patient's emotional well-being. THE VOICE will be a new addition to their existing Child-Life programs and will provide a lively form of interactive entertainment."
