Photos weren't the first thing on our minds during her four-day stay, but my husband and I did manage to take a few. Above you can see l'hôpital du XXIme siècle, as it has been called in the press, by night-- this could be the only such photo on Internet at the moment, so make sure to take a close look!
Below is the view FROM the new hospital site -- the old hospital was located just below the cathedral on the right:
A lengthy walkway leads to the hospital entrance, giving people something to complain about -- how quickly they forget that it was practically impossible to park anywhere near the old site!
Once inside, you know you're not in Kansas anymore:
Those who find the new site "cold," though, should spend some time in the new "family rooms" -- lounges where family members weary of spending hours in the actual hospital rooms can take a break, read a magazine, or play games. I spent a few hours there correcting papers while my daughter was resting and found the atmosphere most relaxing:
Old or new, funky or ultra-modern, downtown or in the new Bourran business area, one thing hasn't changed: the kindness and skills of the Rodez hospital staff. I thank them for all of the support they've given our family during a few difficult times, and wish them luck as they adjust to their new surroundings.
