Staff from the Pediatric Emergency Department at YNH Children’s Hospital expressed their thanks for the grant funds from the Auxiliary’s Project Grants Committee, which they used to purchase an activity table for the waiting room. “We wanted to provide developmentally age-appropriate activities for toddlers to keep them busy while they wait, and distract them from the overall anxiety of being in the hospital,” said Elizabeth Bartone, assistant patient services manager in the Pedi ED. “Thanks to the funds from the Project Grants Committee, we were able to purchase this table. We are so appreciative of the support from the YNHH Auxiliary!”
