The TMC Foundation is proud to announce that the TMC Women of Honor Courtyard is now open following a six-week renovation. The courtyard publicly and permanently celebrates women who have enriched the lives of others in our community. The focal point of the courtyard is the Women of Honor sculpture that embodies the spirit of every woman who has graced TMC’s hallways. It represents TMC for Women and the physicians, nursing staff and, most of all, patients and families.

The courtyard is part of the new Joel M. Childers, M.D., Women’s Center and was designed as a pathway through all stages of life. It is a serene environment for patients who are about to have a baby or undergo life-saving surgery. It provides them and their families with an aesthetically pleasing space to spend time together in a setting that feels less like a hospital. Two sets of doors and additional windows were added to the courtyard to bring more natural light into the hospital and increase access to this beautiful area.

Additionally, the courtyard allows community members to commemorate outstanding women in their lives. Please click here for information about how you can honor a loved one in a public and permanent way.

Later this month, the courtyard entrances by the women’s lobby and across from administration will close for five weeks so that crews can finish construction on Shropshire Hall, the hallway adjacent to the courtyard. During this time, the courtyard will still be accessible from Drachman Hall.

A community-wide celebration will be held in mid-January when that work is complete.

TMC is a leader in addressing women’s health care needs using advanced technology and establishing innovative programs. The addition of the new Joel M. Childers, M.D., Women’s Center allows TMC to continue to be the premier state-of-the-art hospital for compassionate women’s health care in Southern Arizona.

    my wife Kim went on to Heaven, the nurses collected money to have her name on a tile there, i havent been up there yet to see it, its will be very emotional for me to go at this time, but how sweet that the nurses there thought so much of my wife to do this, they said Kim touched so many lives there till the end and left a beautiful legacy. i hope i can go and see it soon, is there an area that shows the names there on one of these TMC pages? thank you.
