Donor Gift for Families are First Maternity Department
Bristol, CT (3/16/10) – New parents Mark and Amanda Malkowski of Avon, CT, have made a donation of $10,000 to Bristol Hospital’s Families Are First Maternity Unit for the purchase of four sleeper chairs and six rocking chairs for maternity patient rooms. Mark and Amanda recently gave birth to their son, Evan, and decided to make the donation because they were so pleased with their experience that they had during their stay last fall. They are the owners of Stag Arms in New Britain.
"It is the most amazing experience in the world to give birth to a child," commented Amanda Malkowski. "Mark and I were so blessed to have had the staff at Bristol Hospital go the extra mile for us during our five day stay. They certainly exceeded our expectations in hospitality, service, knowledge, and patient care. We hope that our contribution will allow other families to continue to have as comfortable and enjoyable an experience as we did."
The gift was made last October and the furniture was delivered in January. "We are grateful that Mark and Amanda chose to make such a lovely gift that will be shared by others at a special time in their lives," commented Eva Wickwire, Assistant Vice President of the Bristol Hospital Development Foundation. The family came in recently to visit the unit and see the impact their donation has made.
Bristol Hospital’s Families Are First maternity unit consists of large private suites for birth, labor, delivery, and recovery that allow for mother and child to stay together at all times.
