Now kids can feel comfortable if they have to go to the emergency room at Lovelace Westside Hospital.

The hospital recently finished a $250,000 renovation project that turned four of its emergency department exam rooms into kid-friendly areas that feature flat-screen TVs and penguin-themed murals designed to make patients under 17 feel more comfortable when they visit the 90-bed hospital.

The renovated rooms are themed just like the 2,200-square-foot inpatient pediatric unit the hospital opened in May 2011.
