Naming of APD’s new Hospital wing honors Dickey Family
June 29, 2012—Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital’s new inpatient wing, which is nearing completion, has been named for Donald Faulkner Dickey in honor of the late son of Closey and Whit Dickey. A dedication and naming ceremony was held in the new wing on June 26, 2012. Invited guests included members of the Dickey family and the Hospital’s Board of Trustees, leaders and staff.
“The name recognizes the Dickey family’s extraordinary generosity to APD and our community, and it honors their son Don, who embodied the values that characterize APD,” said Harry G. Dorman, III, FACHE, President and Chief Executive Office. “It is fitting that his legacy at Alice Peck Day be this special place of compassion and healing.”
The new Donald Faulkner Dickey Medical–Surgical Wing will include 15 private and two semi-private patient rooms, a palliative care suite with adjoining family area, a four patient observation unit, and an inpatient rehabilitation gym. The newly designed space will help improve patient privacy; convenience and safety; the circulation of patients, staff and visitors; and provide a modern and energy-efficient infrastructure.
An Open House event will be held on Sunday, July 15, 2012, from 1:00 to 4:00 PM, when the public is invited to tour the new wing and learn about the next phase of APD’s renovations.
