A child’s view of new hospital

Citizen Staff Writer
Our Opinion

As University Medical Center works to build a children’s hospital, it has some unusual consultants on the project.

Children who have spent substantial time being treated at UMC have been recruited to give suggestions for the Diamond Children’s Medical Center.

The center will be completed in the spring of 2010. Fundraising was started with a $15 million gift from Joan and Donald Diamond.

While professionals are needed to get the building right, the real experts are the children who are patients at the center.

One such expert is 11-year-old Robert King, who has spent more than half his life at UMC and offered suggestions on the new bathrooms.

Diamond Children’s Medical Center is a needed addition to the local health care scene. The young consultants are helping to make it even better.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
