Spring 2012

PMH recently unveiled the new Pediatric Emergency Room located in The Wayne Hogue Emergency Care Center. Young patients are welcomed by vibrant walls featuring colorful characters from a book created by students at Prosser High School. The room began as an idea by an ER nurse on staff at PMH, from there the project took off. “I was excited they thought of us. It enables the students to see how art has a life outside of the classroom and in this case, was a way for them to do a community service in the process. It was a great pairing of idea, timing and desire.” says Kila Smith, Art Teacher at PHS. The entire class of 28 students worked on the book and illustrations, they all then proudly signed 2 copies which were donated to PMH. Pediatric patients can read the books while trying to find the characters located throughout the room.

On your visit to the new Pediatric ER Room, one can expect: Staff that have special Pediatric Advanced Life Support training and have completed the Emergency Nurse Pediatric Course; a space designed with children in mind (less scary with equipment hidden behind cabinetry); books and activities to keep the family entertained. Generous donations from local organizations such as Prosser High School Art Students, The PMH Foundation, PMH Auxiliary, Boboth Vision Clinic - Dr. Fred Boboth, Northwest Casework – Brian Finch, Rachel Colman-Thompson, Glen & Tina Glockner, Prosser Kiwanis and many more allowed this gift to the community to become a reality. Stop by for a tour of PMH to see and learn about all the advancements put into place as we are all “Working Together for Your Good Health”.
