Cardon Children's Medical Center

The hospital where we're staying is the new Children's center attached to Banner Desert in Mesa, it's very nice. We started out on the 5th floor, but then quickly moved up to the 7th floor - Oncology. When you first arrive, you're greeted by waterfall walls, indoor trees and a giant chess and checker board with life-sized pieces. The floors are embedded with little silver butterflies, dragonflies, frogs and lizards, and just around the corner there's a mini-town with trains still under construction.

We have a spacious, private room and bath which includes a mini fridge and flat-screen TV. The satellite stations, video games, internet and on-demand movies are all controlled by the plug in remote or the wireless keyboard. Joshua figured out how everything worked almost immediately. On our floor there's a game room, a toy cabinet, and a snack center fully stocked with drinks, snacks and Popsicles. We can go to the front desk and check out additional movies and video games. There's even a laundry room, but I don't think we're supposed to bring all our laundry from home!! If it wasn't for having to get medical procedures and being poked with needles, you'd almost think we're staying at a vacation resort. As nice as it seems, though, I have informed our Doctor that we will be filing a formal complaint. I told him that there are two things missing that have pretty much ruined the whole ambiance of our experience- (1) Corndogs! and (2) RootBeer! Can you believe you cannot find a single corndog or rootbeer anywhere in this entire hospital?? Outrageous, that's what it is!!
