Children's Healthcare of Atlanta - Scottish Rite
This Zone opened in 2008, the second to open in conjunction with the NHL and their All Star Weekend. In addition to the key interior elements at a Child Life Zone, including computer game stations, a stage with filming capabilities, a craft area, and places for quiet conversation and learning, the Atlanta Zone has an outdoor space designed to allow patients and families to play ball, golf, or sit by the koi pond.
I am Juliet Veal, and I am The Zone Coordinator at Children's. Our Zone has been open since 2008. I have been with Children's for 20 years and have worked in Child Life, Volunteer Services, and now The Zone. The Zone enables me to use all of my previous skill sets to provide an amazing experience for patients and their families. We average 40+ events per month and are open 7 days a week. We host Art Parties to Zoo Mobile Visits and everything in between! In a typical week we might see an Atlanta Brave or a mini horse, decorate Halloween pumpkins, make healthy trail mix, and paint T-shirts! We keep busy with nearly 750 patient visits per month. We enjoy cooking in our kitchen, playing basketball and golf outside (sometimes with the pros), and spending hours of fun on the Wiis!
