Members of Ironworkers Local 86 who work on the Building Hope construction site are sharing good wishes with kids on Children’s inpatient units by painting get well messages on beams that are part of the new building’s structure. Kids (or their family members) can write their first names on paper signs and place them in their room widows; when the ironworkers spot the signs, they paint the children’s names on beams that face the hospital (see photo).
To make sure no one is left out, patients whose rooms do not face the construction site (or their parent or nurse) can call the hospital’s playroom at ext. 7-4433 and leave their first name and spelling on the line.
Patients, families and staff are all having fun spotting names that are added daily! Ironworkers will continue to paint patients’ names on the beams until placement of exterior material begins to cover them up later this year.
