South Coast Improvement Co. donates pillow puppets to pediatric ward

A good night sleep in the hospital isn’t easy to come by for anybody, let alone a child.

Online PR News – 21-July-2014 – MARION, MA – That’s why South Coast Improvement Company (SCI), a design-build general contractor serving New England and the Mid-Atlantic states, recently donated 25 pillow puppets to the pediatric ward as part of South Coast Health Systems and Southcoast Hospital’s Radiothon 2014 to benefit pediatric services at Southcoast Hospitals.

South Coast Improvement Vice President Sean Whalen was on hand to personally make the donation to the children of the pediatric ward.

“I’m not sure who enjoyed the pillow puppets more, the kids or staff,” said Whalen. “Seriously, the folks at South Coast Health Systems and South Hospitals Group, as well as the folks at FUN 107, should be commended for their work on the Radiothon, as well as the people who generously donated.”

Held on June 20, from 6 am to 6pm, the first-ever Radiothon 2014 raised more than $21,000 to benefit pediatric services at Southcoast Hospitals.

“As a general contractor that specializes in renovations for hospitals and medical facilities like Southcoast, we often have to plan our work around the operations of the facility. That requires a lot of planning with staff and some patients. A lot of times, we develop relationships with those patients to the point it’s a little sad when a project is done,” said Whalen. “The pillow puppets have become kind of our calling card for the facilities where we’ve done work. They never fail to bring a smile and we’re delighted to bring that to the Pediatric Ward here at Southcoast.”
