Renovate and Redesign Family Waiting Areas

Family Waiting Room

Walter Reed Army Medical Center

Washington D.C. – August 19, 2008Ā 

At Walter Reed Army Medical Center the Armed Forces Families Foundation contributed $19,000 to renovate and redesign “Family Waiting Areas” where families are able to rest while wounded warriors are in surgery. The project focused on comfort and design. As part of the project, computers were installed so families could keep in touch with those not able to be there.

The AFFF also helped to remodel the Teen Room, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Clinic Waiting Area and Surgical Nurses Area. The project was completed in August 2008.

Command staff cites a significant rise in moral for those who have used or are using these facilities. From conference areas to youth facilities, the support items were greeted as the exact needs of those who would use the hospital.
