Phoebe Putney news release
Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital pediatric patients now have a brighter, livelier playroom to enjoy. According to Nurse Manager Jewell Farr, the bright paintings could ultimately help the healing process for those in PEDS.
"The stimulation of the bright colors will help make the atmosphere and the children more cheerful," she said.
Dianne Johnson, Nancy Wade and Jill Tanner volunteered their time to paint the murals in the playroom, which took about 108 hours to complete, and Children's Miracle Network donated the supplies.
"It is pretty amazing that these women donated so much of their time," said Farr. "It speaks a lot about their character and we are so thankful."
Tanner, a Phoebe volunteer, said painting is a hobby and this was her way to help make the children's stay at the hospital a little more pleasant.
"There is not much for children to do when they are sick in the hospital," she said. "The bright colors are fun and, hopefully, this makeover will make it more enjoyable for the children to play in the playroom."
