people and community reimagined pediatric rooms deliver more joy, less stress for little patients
2 min read | november 02, 2022
The hospital can be a stressful place for children and their parents. But what if going in for an X-ray meant going on an adventure under the sea or into outer space?
At Jesus Municipal Hospital in Rio de Janeiro, that’s exactly what’s happening.
Chevron Brazil committed more than $78,000 to help reimagine the hospital’s radiology experience. Together with the Desiderata Institute and the Rio de Janeiro City Department of Health, we helped create a newly renovated pediatric wing to help deliver more joy and less stress for patients, families and health professionals alike.
Jesus Municipal Hospital specializes in pediatric care for complex and chronic diseases—including childhood cancer. The radiology department conducts more than 50,000 consultations a year.

Developed by renowned artist and architect Gringo Cardia, the cheerful environments—featuring charming sea creatures and friendly robots—are designed to ease children’s stress and anxiety during time-consuming exams, which often involve invasive procedures.
