HCM to host open house on Dec. 7
The Fredericksburg community is invited to a special Hill Country Memorial tour and celebration of the hospital’s renovated patient rooms in the north and south wings on Saturday, Dec 7.
The open house is scheduled from 9-11 a.m. Visitors are invited to tour the new rooms while enjoying refreshments and celebrating the holiday season.
Staff members have tied red ribbons around the donor recognition signs that hang outside each room, so when the donor shows up for a tour they can “cut” the ribbon and open each room.
“Our team is excited to show off our new and improved rooms to the community. The rooms are designed to provide a comfortable, homey feel for patients and their families and promote healing and wellness,” said Maureen Polivka, HCM chief nursing officer. “We are proud that these beautiful rooms now reflect the remarkable care we give our patients.”
The private patient rooms were designed to provide a healing environment, Polivka said. The nature photography was selected for its wide audience appeal and uplifting visual images.
Major renovation updates were made to the heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, along with improvements to the nursing stations and offices.
