Aug 19, 2014
(WATERVLIET) – On Wednesday, August 13, Lakeland Hospital, Watervliet broke ground for the construction of a $35,000 pavilion project funded by the Lakeland Hospital, Watervliet Auxiliary.
The pavilion will extend the healing environment of the hospital to include an outdoor space of interaction among patients, staff, volunteers, visitors. The inviting space will provide patients with access to the outdoors, which, according to numerous studies, can begin to reduce stress, anxiety, and even pain.
Mike Frederick and Frederick Construction are the contractors for the project.
