Dr. Restifo comes from the Keck

Tower Pediatric Emergency
Department Art Project
Several years ago, the Wyomissing School District's Public
Art Workshop designed and fabricated over 40 murals
that cover the exterior walls of Dr. Eve Kimball's pediatric
practice, All About Children, in West Reading. It was such a
success that the Reading Hospital Foundation approached
Dr. Kimball to coordinate a similarly unusual project for
the hospital's new Pediatric Emergency Department.
The Reading Hospital Foundation received a donation
to recruit Mike Miller, a Wyomissing Area School
District art teacher, and his students, to paint ceiling
tiles for each the 16 Pediatric Emergency Department
exam rooms. Over a series of meetings between Dr.
Kimball, the Foundation staff, the Public Art Workshop
students, and the Pediatric Emergency Department staff,
designs were created for a series of 80 ceiling tiles. Each
exam room will include 5 tiles that follow a theme.
While the tiles were completed and delivered to
the hospital earlier this year, conditions delayed the
installation. The tiles have now been installed and can
be enjoyed by the patients in these rooms. We are
pleased with the collaboration between the participating
groups, and thank all involved in administering
care to our community's youngest patients.

Be sure to read the next edition of West Reading
Avenues magazine for a Q&A article with Dr.
Restifo to learn more about Drexel University
College of Medicine at Tower Health.
