Supermodels and Superkids

Children's has a great relationship with Rooms to Go and Rooms to Go has a great relationship with Cindy Crawford; therefore, when Cindy came to town for a store's grand opening and wanted to visit a children's hospital, guess who they called? It was a very full day, but very fun! We had the green room stocked with Pepsi products and ready to go by 8AM. Cindy and some Rooms to Go executives showed up in a blacked out Escalade at 8:05. We already had three news stations set up in a separate room for one on one interviews followed by a press conference with more attending media. After the press conference, we started on our room visits- all 20+ people in the entourage. This is usually when I start to feel a bit overwhelmed because taking this many people through a working clinical environment without disturbing patient care can be quite difficult- especially when we're on a tight schedule. All in all, it was a really great day and everyone had a great experience. The physicians got to meet their dream girl and the kids got to meet a "really pretty lady with a teddy bear". Here's a news clip from the day...

Just Another Day...

I am excited to announce a new addition to the hospital and my job description! The VOICE at Children's opened on Friday and Ryan flew in to town to do the first broadcast himself. It would be so hard for me to put in to words how cool this new multimedia center is, so hopefully this video can give you a good idea!

Ready for the crowd!
