Encompass Group LLC has introduced the Discovery Collection of pediatric health care apparel – four fun prints in a variety of gowns, pajama tops and coordinating solid-color pajama pants designed for kids … and their caregivers.

The Discovery Collection was created for ages 1 up through 12 years. The easy color coordination within the set allows the caregiver to easily grab the correct size. The 100 percent polyester knit is soft and breathable, built for institutional laundering, and meets all federal flammability regulations for children’s sleepwear.

“Because we believe that everyone should feel safe and comfortable in their health care environment, we have developed this new line of pediatric apparel designed to stir children’s imaginations and help them relax in a health care environment, which can be scary and strange,” said Joe Przepiorka, Vice President, Marketing, Encompass Group, LLC.

“The Discovery prints selected by our in-house designer, Denise Formisano, includes Northern Lights, Galileo Guardians, Raining Cats and Dogs, and Stars. All Discovery Comfort Knit fabrication was selected to be comfortable while meeting hospital and institutional laundry standards. The polyester construction is durable for longevity, and also allows for faster drying time in the laundry,” he added.
