Seacrest Studios at Boston Children’s Hospital opened in November 2014 as a multimedia space for music, games and fun!  The studio is made possible thanks to a partnership with the Ryan Seacrest Foundation.

The Seacrest Studio is a state of the art TV and Radio station broadcasting on Channel 8 or 19 to all BCH televisions.  Patients, families, and visitors can call in to LIVE broadcasts by dialing 5-RYAN (5-7926) or stopping by the studio located on the first floor of Main (above the musical stairs and adjacent to the Patient Entertainment Center).

Seacrest Studio is part of the Creative Arts Programs within Child Life Services.  The programming ranges from music request hours to game shows to celebrity guests and more.  Patients can make song requests, participate in games or be a guest DJ.  Patients get an opportunity to explore their creativity and hidden talents on air or from the comfort of their patient rooms. 

Seacrest Studio collaborates with many disciplines with the hospital as well as outside talents and celebrities.  Music Therapy, Artist-in-residence, Clown Care Unit, Hole in the Wall Camp, Nursing, and Volunteer Services are some of the many hospital programs contributing to the studio.  The patients have also been able to meet many local and national celebrities like Meghan Trainor, Superbowl XLIX Champions the New England Patriots, Shawn Mendes, Keith Lockhart, Olympian Medialist Dara Torres, and many more.
