MUNCY– Muncy Valley Hospital is lifting patients’ spirits by decorating their rooms with a beautiful wooden cross, crafted by local carver Michael Balzer. “Each cross is a comforting symbol of God's healing love in our hospital,” Administrator Chris Ballard said.
The project began as a way to engage the community while creatively decorating patient rooms. Crosses are paid for through tax deductible donations from friends in the community. For more information or to make a donation, please contact Sherry Watts, Vice President of Development, at (570) 320-7460.
