The design of the KAC Center is unlike any other facility in the country. Children
will receive unparalleled medical care in a place that is so much more than a
a central landscaped courtyard will be rich with greenery,
colorful flowers, and the soothing sounds of running water. The central atrium
will be tall and filled with cheerful, natural light. Through this maze of beauty,
the children, their families and their doctors will pass to their treatment, their
games, and their entertainment.
A flexible open gym area will be home to all kinds of group activites and games.
A small theater will offer hours of entertainment. An indoor playground and tot
lot will welcome children of all ages, races and backgrounds. Playrooms filled
with toys and games will promote healthy interaction with others who have much
in common. An indoor pool will offer a place for release and relaxation. A multi-media
room will feature a warming fireplace and cozy retreat. To complete the recreational
activities, a miniature golf course and arcade with Skee Ball, pinball and all
the latest high-tech games will provide hours of fun and enjoyment to children
who need it most. Plus, an ongoing program of activities and events will be scheduled
throughout the year.
In the midst of all of this energy and excitement, there will be nature walks,
reading areas, outdoor gardens, a chapel, places for peace, prayer and quiet moments
with family. The medical suites will provide all aspects of care from physician
consultations to suport groups to specific treatments all in rooms that
are cheery and bright. A pharmacy, laboratory, offices for resident physicians
and conference rooms will be located on site for the patient's convenience.
