Children’s play deck dedicated to Cory Garwacki

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Baystate Children’s Hospital in Springfield dedicated a brand new one-of-a-kind exterior play deck Tuesday to benefit the many children and families who visit the hospital on a daily basis.

A special area of the play deck will be dedicated to our longtime friend and former Baystate patient Cory Garwacki. Cory was a Baystate Children’s Hospital champion, who passed away a year ago after a courageous, 27-year battle with short gut syndrome.

Cory was a dedicated Red Sox fan and there’s new space on the play deck that he would have loved. The exterior play deck is outfitted with a Red Sox theme, including authentic seats from Fenway Park, a miniature Pesky Pole, green turf, benches and chairs for families, critical medical equipment, and room for the children to play!

The new facility is adjacent to the renovated indoor play deck, which opened in 2014.
