On Wednesday, June 15 at 10 a.m., Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley will conduct a ceremony to dedicate the Children’s “Garden of Hope” which is located on the hospital’s Beeghly Campus located at 6505 Market Street in Boardman.
This unique project, nestled in a highly visible, yet, enclosed courtyard area adjacent to the registration lobby in Building B, will provide patients, their families and others a comforting place to visit, reflect, heal and find solace in a lovely, tranquil environment. Fully funded through philanthropic donations, the Garden of Hope includes a stone patio, a serene waterfall, teak benches, lush landscaping and a beautiful bronze sculpture. The patio area in the Garden of Hope is lined with personalized, engraved pavers designed to remember individuals and families. Each paver has been inscribed as the donor wishes, in honor, in celebration, or in memory of a special child or other loved one, or to symbolize grateful thanks from patients and families for care received.
To date, 80 donors have contributed over $74,000 towards the project. Initial funding was provided through a lead gift from the Mahoning County Medical Society Alliance.
A limited number of pavers and other naming opportunities are still available. Contact JoAnn Stock, Director of Development, at 330-746-9122 for more information.
