This video makes me cry every time…

We’ve been talking a lot about Everything Matters and the launch of our promise to the community.  Thanks to everyone who’s been writing and sharing about the little things that matter to them at Nationwide Children’s. Your stories are touching and wonderful. I’ll be featuring many of you in upcoming posts so keep those messages coming!

We created this video to introduce Everything Matters internally to the Nationwide Children’s staff but I wanted to share it with my blog friends because I think it really brings our promise to life.  I also wanted to you to meet Lora Kennel. Lora has been an amazing pediatric nurse for many years but she now has a really unusual (and cool) role as a clinical advisor on the hospital construction team.  Basically, she brings all her clinical expertise to the construction process so every aspect of the bricks-and-mortar design is guided by the needs and best interests of patients. Lora’s input has influenced everything from design of the Trauma Rooms to the divider curtains in patient rooms. Lora looks great in a hard hat but she really puts into words why Everything Matters.  Take a look and post a comment to let me know what you think of the video (did you cry too?)

  3. This hospital is awesome!! My son was diagnoised with leukemia 4 years ago and this hospital saved his life!! They helped my son reach remission within a month!! He will be a year off chemo next month! How do you thank a hospital that gave you your child back? I will be forever grateful to this hospital and the staff that works there!!
