Westchester Medical Center, Valhalla, New York.

On Friday, April 20, 2012, at approximately 7:00 PM Eastern, my sister Cari arrived at Westchester Medical Center via helicopter and was admitted to the trauma unit. This is the trauma 1 hospital servicing her part of New York. Earlier that afternoon she was crushed by a horse she was riding. The mare reared up and fell backwards with the full weight of her body smashing Cari, breaking her pelvis in four places, cracking a vertebrae, and a rib.

The trauma unit is in this new wing of the hospital. Her room was immediately above the red entrance sign. The photo is taken just beyond the helicopter pad. 
Eight days after being admitted, she was moved to an older wing. Her room is on the fourth floor just to the right of the flag in this photo. 

The hospital sits on a beautiful campus. My mom and I took a walk on April 29 when we took this photo.
