Children's Epilepsy Hospital, Filadelfia

A playground for treating epilepsy

The Epilepsy Hospital, Filadelfia is one of a kind in Denmark. The hospital is one of the best in the country and specializes in treating and diagnosing children with epilepsy and associated conditions. 

In 2018, the hospital was given a gift from a Danish foundation - funds to establish a large, outdoor playground for the hospital grounds. The playground was built to provide a natural outside environment, removed from the clinical environment, for the children to play and use their senses, and to give doctors and nurses a new way of observing and treating the children. 

Over 120 play activities

The impressive new play area holds more than 120 inclusive play activities, carefully selected to offer play for children of all abilities.The playground is designed using different types of play activities and divided into zones to ensure all children are included in play.

Designed to include all abilities

The new "Jump Out"  play area is inclusive of all children and encourages them to forget about their settings and do what children do best - play!

All 120 plus play activities have been carefully placed to support the children at their individual level. Play equipment like wheelchair swings, sensory gardens and ramp structures make sure that even children with limited mobility are included in play.

The playground allows the kids to play together now. Something they couldn't do before. That makes me really happy.
