Spring weather graced the quiet rural Los Lunas community the morning Lovelace Rehabilitation Hospital made a special donation to El Ranchito de los Niños, a nonprofit alternative to foster care that keeps siblings together.

The hospital gave El Ranchito two shuttle vans, one with only 84,000 miles and both in great running order. The hospital could no longer use them because they lack the current safety standards for new wheelchair lifts.

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.
