A Denver hospital has a way patients can relax while receiving treatment.
Through a partnership between UCHealth and a virtual reality company called Rendever, patients can pass their time virtually traveling to new places.
"There are waves crashing at me. I look around, I see some sand next to me. There's a beautiful island straight ahead and some mountains in the distance," described Hannah Moraski, a patient with a rare blood disease. "The virtual reality is extremely exciting for me particularly, because…I can't travel and I love seeing different places."
