Charlotte hospital home of 5th Seacrest Studios

Posted: Updated:

Patients at Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte have a new way to explore their creativity while they get treatment.

And it's all thanks to American Idol and radio host Ryan Seacrest.

The Ryan Seacrest Foundation opened a multimedia broadcast center at the hospital Monday. It's called "Seacrest Studios". The facility provides patients with a chance to explore radio, television and new media.

"I take a lot of pride in our partnerships and this facility, as you know and as have heard today, is one of the best in the country," said Seacrest.

Programming will include game shows, celebrity interviews and performances. It will be broadcast to patient rooms via closed-circuit TV.

Patients will also get the chance to serve as disc jockeys or on-air guests.

This is the 5th "Seacrest Studios" to open. There are also facilities in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Dallas and California.
