Photo Story: Inside look at the new children’s hospital

Look in on the open house of the new Stead Family Children's Hospital in honor of the University of Iowa Dance Marathon yesterday.

The University of Iowa Dance Marathon (UIDM) is a 24 hour event which raises money for childhood cancer. With the new addition of the Stead Family Children’s Hospital to the U of I Hospitals and Clinics, all money raised at UIDM will help patients residing in the new building.

This year, UIDM celebrated its 23rd anniversary on Feb. 3 and 4, raising $2,572,130.23 dollars For The Kids. Take a look at where this money will be put to use in the photo gallery below.

On the top floor of the hospital there is a room where families can look out over Kinnick Stadium to watch the football games on game day. Madi Barta '18 said "My favorite part is definitely the top floor. I think it's wonderful that children who are not able to leave the hospital will still be capable of watching the football games and forget they're sick for a few hours."
