Transforming the hospital experience for kids, one city at a time

Launching Hospital Bedside Magic™ in a new city is never quite as easy as waving a magic wand. But once Bedside Magic is established, the result is a lasting community program – one that is able to transform the hospital experience for thousands and thousands of kids.

Bring Hospital Bedside Magic™ to your city & build a legacy for kids

Help 10,000 sick kids in your city while building a lasting legacy of hope and caring. Starting Bedside Magic in a new location takes strategy, funding, determination, and some patience. Open Heart Magic has chosen to grow slowly over the last decade to ensure that the quality and reliability of our unique program – and its impact on kids – does not suffer at the expense of growth. With every new program, Open Heart Magic manages the operations and handles all the details, ensuring that kids receive a positive, transformative experience when they need it most.

Chicago: Deep dish magic

Bedside Magic may have started in downtown Chicago’s West Loop, but it has grown to reach kids in hospitals all across Chicagoland. Today, we bring magic – and teach magic — to over 10,000 sick kids each year, thanks to more than 130 volunteer Hospital Magicians visiting 10 area hospitals. Hospital staff see the impact of our work with kids, first-hand. They treat us as partners in the healing process of their young patients.

Ann Arbor: Knowledge, arts, and a little bit of magic

Ann Arbor is home to the University of Michigan, an institution known for being at the forefront of medicine.  So it was a natural fit when Open Heart Magic partnered with the University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. In 2016, a new Bedside Magic was launched at the hospital. Right now, Michigan’s very first Hospital Magicians are helping to raise awareness of the program and – most importantly — bringing hope and strength to hundreds of sick kids and their families.

Cleveland: The real magic of Believeland

Cleveland shines on the shores of Lake Erie, a city experiencing a rebirth. And in 2016, this city got a little brighter. That’s when Bedside Magic came to the Cleveland Clinic. Because of this hospital’s exceptional pediatric care, young patients and their families come here from all over northern Ohio and all across the nation. As certified Hospital Magicians work their magic here, the hospital rooms of sick kids are lighting up with laughter and wonder. And kids are gaining the strength they need at this critical time.
