A FACELIFT FOR THE NEW RESPIRATORY UNIT
In response to COVID, ALYN separated the hospital into two independent wings – one for the respirator-dependent children and one for all other patients, so that we could best protect our most at-risk patients who were expected to be more susceptible to a respiratory illness. Among the massive renovations required to move the Respiratory Rehabilitation Wing from the top floor to the main floor of the Hospital, this separation involved building additional walls within the hospital and a separate entrance so that the ventilated patients could be completely isolated. The Art Therapy Department decided to have the children help decorate one of the new walls. What a difference that made!
