NMH UNVEILS NEW PEDIATRIC ROOM
In cooperation with the Ronald McDonald House of Delaware, Nanticoke Memorial Hospital cut the ribbon last Thursday on its fourth pediatric room, which was decorated in an upbeat medieval style complete with a mural depicting a prince and princess in front of a grand castle. On hand for the event were Anna Scovell, Russell Sullivan, Pam Cornforth, executive director, Ronald McDonald House of Delaware; Jack Riddle, Board of Directors; Chris Henderson, and Ken Bryan, Senior Vice President, Ronald McDonald House of Delaware. Scovell and Henderson worked together to design the room, and Sullivan painted the mural. The hospital hopes that the room will help bed-bound children escape into an imaginary world of kings, castles, knights and horses. Related photo on page 1.
