Members of the Dietary Department plant flowers along "their" bed at the First Ever St. John's Beautification Day. The staff of St. John's Episcopal Hospital held its First Ever Beautification Day on Wednesday, May 14, 2008. Hospital staff planted flowers in the beds of trees newly installed by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. More than 40 of the Parks Department's trees ring the Hospital perimeter. Hospital departments adopted a flower bed to plant and care for.
The idea for the flower planting was the brainchild of LuAnn Madden of the Ambulatory Surgery Department. Margaret Carpenter, Vice President of the Episcopal Health Services Board of Managers, assisted the staff plant the flowers and spoke on the importance of making the Hospital surroundings more beautiful.
