Retiring the wallpaper

Oct. 24, 2019, 10:15 AM

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology recently kicked off the first phase of renovations for the Labor and Delivery unit. Staff from the department helped “retire” the wallpaper in the current delivery rooms by tearing it off the walls. The construction is part of an approximately year-long project to overhaul the birthing area at VUMC to enhance the patient experience with more amenities, a modern design and increased post-partum privacy. The project began this summer with renovations in the Obstetrics Triage unit.  Shown here are, from left, Patricia Cook, RN; Tiffany Lewis, RN; Rosha Webb, RN; Cricket Ramsey, RN; Tanya Dixon; and Patricia Polk.
