Blank Children's Hospital Disney Themed Murals

Blank Children’s Hospital Disney themed murals are adding a bit of magic for pediatric patients and their visitors.

The Walt Disney Company Chairman and CEO Bob Iger made a trip to Des Moines, Iowa recently to visit the Blank Children’s Hospital. While there he dedicated a series of Disney themed murals that will adorn the hallway entrance to the hospital’s Pediatric Emergency room.  These murals will feature over 100 beloved Disney characters from animated films.

“By sharing our timeless stories that bring comfort, happiness and inspiration to kids and their families during stays at hospitals, we are delivering a little bit of Disney magic to those that need it most,” Iger said. “Our hope is that the presence of our beloved characters will make an unfamiliar place a little more comfortable for young patients and less stressful for their families.”

An additional donation of $100,000 to support the hospital’s child life department was announced by Mr. Iger during his visit.

The connection between The Walt Disney Company and the Blank Children’s Hospital is long-standing.  In fact, it stretches back to Walt himself. Hospital founders A.H. and Anna Blank, who were themselves in the movie theater business, wanted to bring a little Disney magic to the hospital so they approached Walt in 1944.  Snow White, Bambi and Pinocchio were just some of the characters featured by Disney artists in a  series of murals for the hospital’s playroom. These original murals have been carefully preserved at Blank Children’s Hospital, where they continue to greet patients and families today.
