Sensory playground coming to St. Vincent

On Monday, St. Vincent announced plans to build a state-of-the-art, indoor therapeutic sensory playground for young patients at St. Vincent Center for Children in Evansville.

The playground will help provide sensory stimulation and cognitive development for children who struggle with a variety of conditions such as Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD).

The playground was made possible due to a generous donation by Bill and Mary (O'Daniel) Stone.

The Stones are Evansville natives. They graduated from Memorial High School in 1973.

Bill is the CEO of Connecticut-based SS&C Technologies, which also has an Evansville office.

The playground is being named in honor of Bill's mom, Patricia Browning Stone.

“My mom, Patricia Browning Stone, was the embodiment of a strong successful woman. She cared deeply for children and was taken from us at a young age, said Bill. “We are certain, she is watching from above and she would be very proud to be associated with the fine people who will make this fabulous facility a reality.”
