Batman and Spiderman reported to work at PSE&G Children’s Specialized Hospital on Wednesday, May 29 in New Brunswick to wash windows and surprise the patients and families at the pediatric rehabilitation hospital.
“Our patients at the PSE&G Children's Specialized Hospital spend every day working really hard recovering from serious injury, or being born too early – all preparing to be home with their families. As we do that work, we want to make sure we provide opportunities to remind all of us that regardless of how sick, injured or fragile our patients are, they are still children and we need to find ways to create fun and smiles,” said Amy B. Mansue, president and CEO, Children’s Specialized Hospital. “Many thanks to Alpha Window Cleaning for bringing joy and laughter to our families; it is an essential part of the healing process.”
Window washers from the Wanaque, NJ based company immediately agreed to dress like the famous caped crusader and wall-scaling Spidey. When hospital staff approached Alpha Window Cleaning owner Ronn Kidd with this idea; he was more than willing to help.
The super heroes then went inside to make their rounds on the units and greet patients for pictures. Fun is part of a patient’s rehabilitation at PSE&G Children’s Specialized Hospital. These children are recovering from brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, premature birth, developmental delays or life-changing illnesses.
