WHEN: Monday, Nov. 25, (event begins promptly at 3:30 pm)
WHAT: Paoli Hospital will host a dedication ceremony of artwork donated by the Philadelphia Zoo. The photos of the Zoo’s most beloved animal families are hung throughout the halls of Paoli Hospital’s brand new Hattersley Family-Centered Maternity & Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), which, like the Zoo, is dedicated to a family-centric experience. As parents welcome their newest miracles, they can relate to giraffes, orangutans, Amur Tigers and other majestic wild animals who share the same, nurturing bond with their young. The dedication will consist of brief remarks and a tour of the artwork hung on Paoli Hospital’s new maternity unit and NICU.
WHY: The artwork was donated by the Philadelphia Zoo in honor of Sandra Baldino, Paoli Hospital Foundation Trustee and Philadelphia Zoo Board Member, and her sons, who were both born several weeks early. Baldino’s youngest son was a patient for two weeks in the NICU at Paoli Hospital.
WHO: The dedication will feature remarks from Jack Lynch, President and CEO, Main Line Health; Jim Paradis, President, Paoli Hospital; and Vik Dewan, President and CEO, Philadelphia Zoo. Sandra Baldino and her children will also be in attendance at the event.
WHERE: Paoli Hospital, 255 West Lancaster Avenue, Paoli, PA 19301
