On June 1st, Little Company of Mary Hospital (LCMH) celebrated the opening of its newly renovated 4 Southwest Orthopedic/Surgical Nursing Unit and a special photography exhibit by Saint Xavier University (SXU) students. The students’ photography will permanently grace the walls of the hospital, inspiring healing for both current patients and as Little Company of Mary’s healthcare ministry continues for future generations.
Designed to mirror the hospital’s West Pavilion patient tower, which opened in 2012, the new 4 Southwest orthopedic unit at LCMH consists of 12 patient rooms complete with wooden floors, private bathrooms and full-size pullout beds for visitors. The photography exhibit by Saint Xavier University students adds a familiar feel and a sense of home to the hospital’s newest unit, giving patients the opportunity to admire beautiful, well-known local landscapes during their hospital stay. Some of the photographs lining the walls of the unit’s hallway and inside of patient rooms include: Rainbow Cone, Lake Katherine and the Beverly Unitarian Church, also known as “The Castle.”
“It’s important for patients to move following orthopedic surgery,” explains Lisa DiMarco, M.B.A., R.N., NEA-BC, FACHE, Vice President of Patient Care Services at LCMH. “The beautiful landscapes created by the talented SXU students truly bring the community indoors. Our newly decorated orthopedic corridors offer a healing environment with a sense of familiarity for our patients.”
