The Primary Children's Medical Center is getting a new installation thanks to the Forever Young Foundation.

By early June the new playroom will be completed and open for use. The facility will include a teen room, a multi-sensory room, and a room entirely dedicated to music. Here's a bird's-eye view of their plans to give you an idea of the finished product:

The music room is a special new addition to Forever Young's intiatives. The room is called Sophie's Place, as a dedication to the late Sophie Barton, a singer-songwriter from Holladay who provided music to hospital patients as an offering of peace and sanctuary. As music has been shown to be an effective therapy tool, Sophie's Place will offer the opportunity for children to create and listen to music with their families. There will be a listening station and a beautiful custom stage.

Here's a close-up on some other delightful design elements: a medical-play center and art room.

We can't wait to see the finished product in June, but it's not quite there yet. Here are some snapshots of the project's current state. It certainly looks like its shaping up to be a balm for the soul.
