PHC Pediatric Unit Gets New Mural


The Angels on the Bay Pediatric Unit at Peninsula Hospital Center is very proud to showcase the new and beautiful wall mural depicting an underwater scene, which compliments the water theme throughout the Unit. Maritza Muré, an artist herself and the wife of PHC Board of Directors member, Joseph Muré, Jr., was the driving force behind the concept of painting an aquatic-themed wall mural in the Pediatric Unit. She then recruited other community talent to assist her in this large-scale endeavor. Dale Murray, R.N., the Assistant Head Nurse of the Pediatric Unit says, "The children are amazed by the design and size of the new mural." The mural is directly across from the fresh water fish tank which is also loved by the children. "We often see children looking at both attractions -  with equal awe. Frankly, all the adults are amazed by the mural, too!" Robert V. Levine, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Hospital Center was very appreciative of the project as well. "It is always so gratifying when members of the community become directly involved in making a difference for patients at the Hospital Center. Maritza and her fellow artists did an incredible job."
