A place is more than a place. It’s also an experience.

It’s about the people who work in the place, who are passionate about medicine, research, and caring for others. It’s about the relationships between colleagues, risks taken, and discoveries made. And the patients and families who come through the doors.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][ult_animation_block animation=”No Animation” animation_duration=”2″ animation_delay=”0″ animation_iteration_count=”1″][stat_counter icon=”Ico-Moon-books” icon_size=”40″ icon_color=”#ffffff” icon_style=”circle” icon_color_bg=”#ed1c24″ counter_value=”4″ counter_suffix=” trips to the archives” speed=”10″ counter_color_txt=”#ed1c24″ desc_font_style=”font-weight:bold;” title_font_size=”desktop:20px;” desc_font_size=”desktop:30px;” desc_font_color=”#ed1c24″ suf_pref_font_size=”desktop:20px;” suf_pref_font_color=”#777777″][/ult_animation_block][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][ult_animation_block animation=”No Animation” animation_duration=”3″ animation_delay=”1″ animation_iteration_count=”1″][stat_counter icon=”Defaults-medkit” icon_size=”40″ icon_color=”#ffffff” icon_style=”circle” icon_color_bg=”#02a8d2″ counter_value=”9″ counter_suffix=” patient stories” speed=”10″ counter_color_txt=”#02a8d2″ desc_font_style=”font-weight:bold;” title_font_size=”desktop:20px;” desc_font_size=”desktop:30px;” desc_font_color=”#02a8d2″ suf_pref_font_size=”desktop:20px;” suf_pref_font_color=”#777777″][/ult_animation_block][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_text]A book celebrating the 25th Anniversary of McMaster Children’s Hospital needs to be more than a recounting of facts, the steps from concept to world-renowned hospital. People involved from the beginning were too close to the story. An outside perspective would help tell the story.

The storytelling had to be multi-faceted to recognize the contribution of many departments and services. The story also needed to be told in context with the times.

The book doesn’t need to be read in sequence. It might be read in a waiting room by parents of a sick child, so the story telling is in photos, titles and the graphics. The deeper narrative is found in the body of the text.

And in case there was any doubt how special a place McMaster Children’s Hospital really is, patient stories demonstrate this with tender photos.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][ult_animation_block animation=”No Animation” animation_duration=”2″ animation_delay=”1″ animation_iteration_count=”1″][stat_counter icon=”Ico-Moon-camera” icon_size=”40″ icon_color=”#ffffff” icon_style=”circle” icon_color_bg=”#5bb75b” counter_value=”1734″ counter_suffix=” images to review on DVDs ” speed=”10″ counter_color_txt=”#faa732″ desc_font_style=”font-weight:bold;” title_font_size=”desktop:20px;” desc_font_size=”desktop:30px;” desc_font_color=”#5bb75b” suf_pref_font_size=”desktop:20px;” suf_pref_font_color=”#777777″][/ult_animation_block][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][ult_animation_block animation=”No Animation” animation_duration=”3″ animation_delay=”2″ animation_iteration_count=”1″][stat_counter icon=”Ico-Moon-images” icon_size=”40″ icon_color=”#ffffff” icon_style=”circle” icon_color_bg=”#f89742″ counter_value=”66″ counter_suffix=” chosen images” speed=”10″ counter_color_txt=”#5bb75b” desc_font_style=”font-weight:bold;” title_font_size=”desktop:20px;” desc_font_size=”desktop:30px;” desc_font_color=”#f89742″ suf_pref_font_size=”desktop:20px;” suf_pref_font_color=”#777777″][/ult_animation_block][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_btn title=”Visit A Day in the Life at McMaster Children’s Hospital” style=”custom” custom_background=”#00ccff” custom_text=”#ffffff” shape=”square” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-external-link” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fhamiltonhealthsciences.ca%2Fbody.cfm%3Fid%3D2869||target:%20_blank|” add_icon=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
