The parent’s room in the Children’s Ward at Hutt Hospital has just received a makeover.
The paint was tired and the furniture ancient. It was a dreary room for parents to spend time, especially when they were tired after spending many hours with their child in the ward – and were looking for a bit of ‘quiet time’.
However all of that has changed thanks to the generosity of Raswinder and Tarmindar Singh of Such Energy. The couple asked the Hutt Hospital Foundation Trust to identify initiatives to improve the Children’s Ward, after their own 18- month old son had been admitted to the hospital for two days. They had spent time in the parent’s room and were happy to provide the room with a facelift.
The room received a re-paint, new coffee table, new 3-seater leather couch, 2-seater leather couch and a leather reclining chair costing $4,000. The 2-seater was placed in the children’s play area so the parents can sit with their child.
