Second-grade students from around the county visited various
departments in the hospital, including dietary, rehab, laundry,
laboratory and radiology. Highlights of the visits included a trip
into the freezer, a mock stay in a patient room and of course, the
helipad. The students also enjoyed tours of an ambulance provided by
the Logan County Paramedic Association. Each group was guided by a
member of the ALMH Auxiliary.
"The ALMH Auxiliary members truly enjoy sharing the day with the
children. The children are always very curious and eager to learn
about how the hospital works," said Lynne Metz, manager of volunteer
and special services.
Carroll Catholic student Ella wrote a thank-you note for her
Thank you for
showing us the pool. I liked the big lab. I liked the X-rays. I
think you are very, very, brave.
