Owensboro Health Pediatric Rooms Receive Update
Seven rooms in the Surgery Pediatric Unit at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital have undergone a renovation to be more kid-friendly. The room decor coordinates with the newly-designed pediatric playroom on the sixth floor.
Studies have shown having pediatric decor in a healthcare setting not only improves the patient experience but also supports the complex physical and emotional needs of children. The project was made possible by Owensboro Health’s Volunteer Auxiliary and has taken a year to complete.
The Volunteer Auxiliary supports funding requests for projects throughout the hospital.
