On Friday, February 5, Sheila Brammer and Betty Smallwood of the Orange Park Woman’s Club presented Orange Park Medical Center with an assortment of hand knitted children’s items. Members of this non-profit organization knit hats and blankets for children who come to Orange Park Medical Center for pediatric care, whether in the Pediatric ER, Pediatric Inpatient Unit or the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. The Woman’s Club first began donating these handcrafted items in October 2014.
The Orange Park Woman’s Club accepts yarn donations and they can be dropped off at their monthly meeting held the first Thursday of each month at 10 a.m. or at their Thrift Shop on Wednesday and Saturday from 10:00am to 1:00pm. The Orange Park Woman’s Club is located at 130 Kingsley Avenue.
Orange Park Medical Center’s Pediatric ER is currently staffed by on-site Pediatricians 24/7 and is the only ER in the area with full-time pediatricians around the clock. Our Pediatric Specialists and kid friendly waiting room help ease children’s anxiety about being in the ER. The Pediatric Inpatient Department has eight private pediatric inpatient beds and four Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) beds and is staffed with specially trained Pediatricians, Pediatric Nurses and Pediatric Intensivists. Our PICU has pediatric intensivists in the unit twenty four hours a day.
