UI Children's Hospital celebrates $10,000 game room


IOWA CITY (KWWL)-- The University of Iowa Children's Hospital is celebrating a brand new $10,000 game room.

The children's hospital was announced as one of three winners of Xbox 360's and the Children's Miracle Network's online game room giveaway by garnering more than two million votes.

The room consists of three Xbox 360 game systems hooked up to 40 inch monitors and two brand new computers.

"Everybody needs fun, kids need to play.  It's an important part of the healing process. So it will really be a room of healing in many ways," said Gwen Senio, manager of the Child Life program.

One hundred seventy hospitals across the country were eligible to win the game room makeover.
