Butterfly Room to be dedicated at Driscoll Children’s Hospital

WHAT: Driscoll Children’s Hospital will hold a special dedication for the Butterfly Room, a newly renovated patient room for terminally ill patients and their families. Featuring adjoining rooms – one for the patient and the other for family to stay around the clock – the Butterfly Room is specially designed to offer a peaceful and therapeutic environment. The suite’s set-up is conducive to a family’s grieving process, allowing private time in the adjoining family room when needed without being too far from their child’s hospital room. Renovations include soothing colors and artwork and curtains to strategically hide wall panels with medical equipment in the patient area, as well as a sleeper sofa, compact refrigerator and microwave in the family room. The Butterfly Room renovations were made possible by a donation of $35,000 from the 2010 Valero Texas Open golf tournament.

WHEN: 3 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15

WHERE: Driscoll Children’s Hospital, 3533 S. Alameda St., 4th Tower
