Made possible by longtime MVH Foundations supporters, children’s author Karin Spicer and her husband Ed Blake, past chair of the Foundation board, Abby’s Nook is a dedicated space for children inside MVH’s Shaw emergency department as well as a space adjacent to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Named for Spicer’s gray-and-white kitty, Abby, the spaces contain books, puzzles, and more to entertain and educate children. Learn more >
