Paul Frank + Collins is a proud sponsor of the new Glen and Rosemary Wright Mother-Baby Unit at the University of Vermont Medical Center. Over 800 individuals and organizations donated a total of $3 million toward the project. We at PF+C are pleased that one of the 22 new rooms bears the Paul Frank + Collins name.
The new Mother-Baby Unit is a nearly $16 million, state-of-the-art maternity ward designed to provide privacy and comfort to more than 2,000 mothers and babies a year. The new private rooms are equipped with bathrooms and fold-up Murphy beds for overnight stays for a support person or family member. Each room includes a touch-screen call center at the foot of each bed, which postpartum patients can use to request services ranging from food, ice and water to emergency medical care. Rooms also have flat screen TVs with educational programming that provides information on early parenthood and infant care.
The new unit opened up to patients and families on August 4, 2015.
