Lehigh Valley Children’s Hospital partnered with Lehigh Valley International Airport (LVIA) to create a special place for young children and their families to pass the time while waiting for their planes to depart – the Lehigh Valley Children’s Hospital Play Area at LVIA.

The play area replicates in miniature a lot of the features found at Lehigh Valley Hospital–Cedar Crest’s campus, as well as other area landmarks, all arranged so kids can enjoy playing with them. Some of the highlights include:

Jumping on the back of a MedEvac ambulance.

For young children and their mothers, a Mamava lactation pod provides a comfortable, private breast and bottle feeding option. And older children enjoy the tech bar, where they can charge their mobile devices before they get on the plane.
