CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- A room with a view! Patients in Cape Coral Hospital's OB unit will now have more to look at than just the back of a curtain.
The hospital has added "bedscapes"- which are large versions of soothing images from Sanibel island.
The three images that were picked show the area around the Sanibel lighthouse.
The therapy is new to the area- and hospital employees hope this will help patients with their recovery process.
"the whole aspect of it being local. People know where it is, and most people who live here know where the Sanibel lighthouse is. And you can say to yourself "gosh when this is over, I'm gonna go there in person and walk on the beach myself," said Jenny Drew, a medical social worker with Cape Coral Hospital.
Drew took the photos now being used for the images.
The hope is to get bedscapes into the rest of the local hospitals sometime in the near future.
