UnityPoint Health - St. Luke's Foundation & Children's Miracle Network unveils new Pediatric Renovation

null

UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s Foundation and the Children’s Miracle Network revealed the new pediatric inpatient unit renovation last Friday, October 7. The $325,000 renovation was made possible by two generous donations from Dr. Lee and Ruth Van Voorhis, a former physician and medical director at St. Luke’s, and The Gilchrist Foundation.

From the moment a child enters the pediatrics unit, they are now greeted with a calming jungle theme completed with interactive and engaging artwork. The nurses’ station is crowned with six-foot leaf sculptures, and the wood floors have a flowing design reminiscent of water, along with three colorful floor-to-ceiling Acrovyn art pieces. St. Luke’s also partnered with local artists from Art SUX Gallery to commission three unique paintings.

“It was truly a special event, I am very grateful for the opportunity to join the event and see the impact our parents had on the pediatrics unit,” said Susan Bohnenkamp, daughter of Dr. Lee and Ruth Van Voorhis.

As Siouxland’s only comprehensive Women’s and Children’s Health Services provider, this unit will help St. Luke’s to continue to provide services to more than 19,000 pediatric patients who visit our hospital and clinics each year.

“We are proud to showcase this new space that will serve as a welcoming and comfortable place for families to be when they have a child receiving care in the hospital,” said Kari Winklepleck, President of the UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s Foundation.  

The St. Luke’s Foundation and Children’s Miracle Network also would like to recognize CMBA Architects and W.A. Klinger for their expertise and work on the renovation.
