ETMC Trinity pediatrics benefit from wagon donation.

Trinity - wagons gift

ETMC Trinity is the recipient of two bright red wagons donated by Radio Flyer as part of a program administered by Starlight Children's Foundation to improve the hospital stay of youth and their families.

Radio Flyer has been helping Starlight Children's Foundation brighten hospital hallways since 2001 through the donation of more than 6,000 wagons to hospitals throughout the United States and Canada. 

Hospital personnel can use the classic wagons in place of wheelchairs or stretchers to transport children to and from surgeries, treatment rooms and playrooms. The wagons help to make the experience an adventure, with children traveling the hallways in comfort and style.

"It is heartwarming to see our littlest patients transported in a fun, safe and comfortable wagon to their treatment rooms or simply on a ride to provide entertainment or distraction from their illness," said ETMC Trinity Administrator Brett Kirkham.

"Our patients love being strolled around the hospital in a wagon. Their parents have been especially pleased by the ease and maneuverability it offers," he added.

Serving more than 60 million children and their families since inception, Starlight Children's Foundation is a global children's charity that offers various programs that focus on children's health.
