Children’s department at Heartlands Hospital transformed thanks to your donations
Heartlands Hospital treats around 56,000 children each year and now, thanks to donations to University Hospitals Birmingham Charity, young patients will be able to benefit from a new children’s garden and a refurbished ward.
UHB Charity launched its Children’s appeal in order to refurbish the children’s departments across Heartlands, Good Hope and Solihull hospitals. Following the renovation to the children’s department at Good Hope Hospital, the Charity has now completed a brand new garden at Heartlands Hospital, and a refurbishment of Ward 14.
The garden is completely accessible and will allow young inpatients at Heartlands Hospital to enjoy some time outside in a fun and exciting space, giving them a break from being on the wards. Complete with a pirate ship, the garden gives space for children of all ages to play or simply to sit. Thanks to its proximity to the wards, children can even enjoy the garden from their hospital beds.

Ward 14 is one of the three children’s wards at Heartlands, and it has received a makeover thanks to the generous donations that UHB Charity has received. The new wall art and features has transformed the look and feel of the ward, creating a space that is light, bright and child friendly.

UHB Charity’s Director of Fundraising, Charlotte Schofield, said: “We are delighted with the new children’s garden at Heartlands Hospital. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters we have been able to transform the old garden into the perfect space for poorly children to have fun.
“Our thanks go to all of our donors, supporters and fundraisers whose generosity and hard work has made this possible.”
“The garden and ward refurbishment are both part of our wider aim to transform the children’s departments across our hospitals, and we still need further support to make this a reality.”
