Radio Flyer Wagons
Radio Flyer, Inc. has been helping Starlight brighten hospital hallways since 2001 through the donation of more than 6,000 cherry red wagons to hospitals throughout the United States and Canada. Hospital personnel use the classic wagons in place of wheelchairs or stretchers to transport children to and from surgeries, treatment rooms and playrooms. The wagons help to make the experience an adventure, with children traveling the hallways in comfort and style.
“It is heartwarming to see our littlest patients transported in a fun, safe and comfortable wagon to their treatment rooms or simply on a ride to provide entertainment or distraction from their illness,” said Ann Wellman, director of development at Memorial Hermann Woodlands Hospital in Woodlands, Texas.
“Our patients love being strolled around the hospital in a wagon,” added Collette Rossi-Luebke, child life specialist at Rockford Memorial Hospital in Rockford, IL. “Their parents have been especially pleased by the ease and maneuverability it offers. We have found the children to be less stressed and more relaxed when brought to the operating room in a wagon instead of a cart.”
Radio Flyer donates the Pathfinder Wagon (Model #2700) to Starlight for hospital usage.
