I was speechless when I entered our new community hospital. It is gorgeous with earth colors, natural wood, and big open windows. It is truly breath-taking and something this community can be so proud of. You truly feel like you are in a luxury hotel instead of a hospital.
We were invited to bring all three of our children and they were the only children at the gala. Amazingly they were well-behaved and seemed to enjoy themselves. The food was wonderful and the company even better.
Here is Lindy White with some opening remarks. She is such a wonderful leader for our local hospital even if she made me tear up with her sweet remarks about our family.
This room is near and dear to our heart because this is the infusion room for chemotherapy. David will not utilize this for his current treatment because we are under the care of pediatric oncologists, but this is where our friends and neighbors will receive their chemo right here in our area. What a blessing not to have to travel for chemo! Each patient has their own TV to make their treatment stay a little more comfortable. The campaign to purchase the chemo mixer is still going strong. Having this chemo mixer in Smyth County will decrease the length of time cancer patients have to wait and provide an even higher level of care for Smyth Countians. If you are interested in donating to the worthy cause please consider doing so.
The top picture is looking up in the dining area. The colors coupled with the wood truly makes you feel like you are in a luxury hotel instead of a hospital. Below is a picture of my boys at the end of the evening. We had such a wonderful night at our NEW local hospital!
