The Ryan Seacrest Foundation has partnered with Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children to open its 11th Seacrest Studio! Ryan Seacrest announced the exciting news on-air on Thursday, November 7, revealing the state-of-the-art broadcast media center for patients to explore the creative realms of radio, television and new media will begin construction in late 2019, with a grand opening slated for summer 2020.
The Seacrest Studio will be located on the first floor of the hospital, adjacent to the main atrium. The 1,200-square-foot studio will be encased in glass, allowing patients and visitors to view the daily programming happening inside.
“I have always believed in the healing power of entertainment, but when we opened our first studio nearly nine years ago, I had no idea the extent of the benefits that these creative outlets could bring to patients and their families,” Seacrest shared. “As we open our 11th Seacrest Studio, we could not be more excited to bring these opportunities to the families of Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and look forward to many memories to come in the Orlando community.”
The goal of Seacrest Studios is to help patients and their families through the healing process during their stay via music, entertainment and creative expression. Patients are able to create and produce their own shows as well as meet and spend time with some of their favorite artists. Artists who have visited Seacrest Studios in the past include the likes of Selena Gomez, Charlie Puth, Shawn Mendes, Lana Del Rey, The Chainsmokers and many more.
