“My Little Waiting Room” Opening at St. Vincent Medical Center – Co-founders: Amy Paterson and Melissa Moore

Posted by: Admin in: Lane News -

PORTLAND, Ore. – Providence St. Vincent Medical Center is opening a new drop-in child care soon called ‘My Little Waiting Room.’

Two moms came up with the idea after one of them, Amy Paterson, went through a battle with breast cancer. She went to 144 medical appointments in a year and had to arrange for child care each time.

“We believe that since retail stores, gyms and movie theaters offer drop-in child care, so should hospitals, where families are often in crisis and could use it the most,” Paterson said in a press release sent out by the hospital.
