Earlier this year, I had the privilege to photograph some very special kids, doctors, and nurses at the Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Twenty-two volunteer photographers in all donated their time and talent to provide images for the hospital’s 30th anniversary book: One Day at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. We all covered different departments and handed in about 10,000 images! The tough job of choosing images for the book went to Joe Kester (of PCH’s media relations department) and Corey Schwartz of Desert Ridge Photography who organized all the photographers.
Phoenix Children’s Hospital has been ranked by U.S. News & World Report as a 2013-14 Best Children’s Hospital in five specialties. The hospital is simply AMAZING. They did such a magnificent job with their renovations. It looks almost like an art museum to me. Every doctor, nurse, and staff I encountered there was top notch. It was heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time to see these kids being cared for, and their precious smiles and resiliency despite all they must go through.
Below are a few of the images I took that were published in the book.
