Local artist donates artwork to Alice Springs Hospital

The donation of artwork by local artist Kaye Kessing will brighten up the Paediatrics Unit in the Alice Springs Hospital’s Emergency Department (ED).

Kaye’s whimsical pictures are a great way to distract children who may be frightened or stressed by a hospital visit.

A total of 11 pictures document the arrival of feral animals to the Red Centre.

The Central Australia Health Service would like to thank Farida Khawaja, Specialist Clinician in the Emergency Department, for her efforts in organising the images.
