Mercy Medical Center’s impressive new hospital tower in downtown Baltimore is all set to open
tomorrow, Dec. 19. Amid the fanfare, hospital leaders have added a nice Christmas touch that hearkens back to the days when Mercy’s “old tower” first opened nearly five decades ago.
Back when the 1963 building was the new kid on the block, Mercy employees placed stencils in the lighted windows of patient rooms — spelling out “A CHILD IS BORN” on the side of the tower.
If you take a close look near the top of today’s $400 million Mary Catherine Bunting Center, you’ll see that Mercy has posted the same lighted message.
Very cool idea, Mercy!
