Orange Park Medical Center Staff and Orange Park Woman’s Club Members

Orange Park Medical Center was recently presented with a generous assortment of hand knitted children’s items from the Orange Park Woman’s Club. Members of this non-profit organization knitted hats and blankets for children who come to Orange Park Medical Center for care. Members Betty Smallwood, Millicent Sirch, Margaret Toms, Sheila Brammer and Carolyn Clark presented the items to the Director of Pediatrics, Elaine Smith, Director of Women’s Services Debbie Szpila and women’s services and pediatric nurses.

“We deeply appreciate the ladies of the Orange Park Woman’s Club who took the time to make these beautiful items for our pediatric patients,” said Elaine Smith, Director of Pediatrics at Orange Park Medical Center. “These items are sure to bring smiles to their faces.”

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 10:00am or at their Thrift Shop on Wednesday and Saturday from 10:00am – 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. Our Pediatric Specialists and kid friendly waiting room help ease children’s anxiety about being in the ER. The Pediatric Inpatient Department is opening in November and the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) is opening in early 2015.
