Ann Kaczmarek, nurse manager of Bradford Regional Medical Center’s Emergency Department, makes some minor adjustments to the gravel bottom of the new 75-gallon aquarium installed in the waiting room. It was installed to give the waiting room a more soothing and calm atmosphere, she says. The aquarium also goes along with the seascape theme of the child-friendly play area in the Emergency Department waiting room. Nearly $9,000 in funding for the waiting room’s aquarium and child-friendly play area came from the Kids & Cancer Benefit Motorcycle Dice Run Committee. The committee held a fundraising dice run in July 2007.
