New ‘Wall of Hope’ in Children’s Hospital Neonatal Ward Helps Families Stay Strong

Parents whose babies are being treated in the always-scary neonatal intensive care unit at this hospital get a message of hope every day.

Every time parents or nurses pass down the hallway, they get to visualize a positive future for the tiny patients.

The Mesa, Arizona hospital, Banner Children’s at Desert, created a ‘Wall of Hope’ as a reminder for families to expect better days ahead.

The wall features photos that highlight former NICU patients in a stark and inspiring contrast.

The images show the now-healthy, happy kids holding pictures of themselves when they were tiny babies hooked to monitors and weighing only a few pounds.

It’s clear in these photos the kids are proud to have overcome major setbacks as infants with the help of their families and medical team.
