10.16.17 in MyMusicRx
Kadlec Regional Medical Center took up a new “music as medicine” program Friday for its pediatric patients. Northwest Mutual in Kennewick donated $15,000 and Kadlec added another $5,000 to bring the program to the hospital. “We have had volunteers sharing their musical talents with our patients for years, but bringing the MyMusicRx program to our youngest patients helps ease their way during their stay in the hospital, ” said Reza Kaleel, Kadlec chief administrative officer. The program comes from the Portland-based Children’s Cancer Center. Kadlec is the first regional-sized hospital to try it out.
