Under most circumstances, the placement of one brick in a multi-million dollar structure would not be big news. But when the brick is part of the new WVU Medicine Children’s Hospital, it becomes a lead story. The brick, laid Jan. 21 by Children’s Chief Operating Officer Amy Bush, B.S.N., M.B.A., R.N., C.N.O.R., represents another big step in the completion of a facility that will change lives throughout the region.
“This week is an exciting week for us here at Children’s Hospital because we’re enclosing our building,” Bush said. “We’re beginning to place the final touches on the building, which is actually placing the brick in all the spots that aren’t glass and colored windows. It’s very significant to be finishing the outside of the building and then continuing on with our work inside the building.”
