Players visit Scottsdale Healthcare Thompson Peak Hospital
Wendy Ward, Cindy LaCrosse and Tiffany Joh visited with patients, visitors and staff at Scottsdale Healthcare Thompson Peak Hospital on March 15.
Hospital administrator Jean Knoedler toured the group around the new hospital, which is just a ‘short drive’ from the Wildfire Golf Club and JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa, site of this week’s inaugural RR Donnelley LPGA Founders Cup.
The tour included the hospital’s ER, the state’s only Ambient Experience CT Suite with calming multimedia surround sound, lighting and animated murals, patient care areas and healing garden.
Players visited with and signed autographs for knee replacement patients and others in the orthopedic unit.
An added bonus was a trip to the OR, where they learned about the hospital’s daVinci robotic surgical system, and each took turns “operating” with the robot!
