A new “Wall of Hope” in a Children’s Hospital in Arizona is proving hope for parents experiencing fear for their child’s future.
Wall of Hope
The new “Wall of Hope” in Banner Children’s Hospital at Desert is helping parents stay strong amidst the condition of their children. Every family member and staff who walks down the hallway gets to have hope for a brighter future.
That specific wall features photos of now-healthy children holding pictures of themselves in the hospital’s NICU. The photos show how they were hooked in medical equipment while they were still tiny vulnerable infants weighing only a few pounds.
“Wall of Hope” shows how these children overcame their life-threatening condition with the help of their families and the medical team. The NICU Parent Advisory Board decided to create the wall in an attempt to help the families and hospital staff stay strong.
The following are some of the photos featured.

Banner Children’s Hospital
Banner Children’s Hospital at Desert is formerly known as Cardon’s Children’s Medical Center. Their main objective is to provide “family-centered” comprehensive pediatric medical care for children in need.
“From the moment you enter our facility, you will notice that we are a little different,” the hospital wrote on their website.” Our front entrance is marked by a soothing water wall, lifelike trees, park benches, and street lamps. Everything we do here is to welcome your family and make you feel comfortable. We provide family-centered, comprehensive pediatric care for children. We work together as a team. With our physicians, nurses, technicians, and support staff each playing a specific role in your care plan.”
With the creation of the “Wall of Hope,” they truly stand by their mission.
