Ryan Seacrest and his foundation donated a new multimedia broadcast studio in the celebrity host’s name to Boston Children’s Hospital Friday.
The studio, which will be named Seacrest Studios, will serve as an opportunity for patients at the hospital to create various media projects.
Seacrest was joined at the hospital in a red carpet event by Grammy award-winning artist Usher, the Swon Brothers, and Shawn Mendes.
“Providing our patients and families with the best possible hospital experience during their stay is an absolute priority for us,” said Sandra L. Fenwick, the hospital’s president and CEO, in a statement. “The addition of Seacrest Studios is a wonderful way for our patients to be active while they recover.”
“We’re so excited and proud to be opening our eighth broadcast media center at world renowned Boston Children’s Hospital,” Seacrest said. “Sometimes patients get bored during their stay at a hospital; they miss being active and just being kids. We hope the studio will serve them as not only a welcome distraction, but as a constant source of fun and inspiration.”
