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.

The wall was created by the NICU Parent Advisory Board for both patients and staff—to help keep their spirits up during difficult times.
