The Sibling Playroom is a unique playroom just for the siblings of patients who visit and receive care at St Louis Children’s Hospital. The Sibling Playroom is a fun space with toys and activities available to meet a wide variety of interest and needs and is made possible through generous donations to the St. Louis Children’s Hospital Foundation by employees and other donors.
