The Saint John Regional Hospital Foundation unveiling a new rooftop patio.

The Medical Director of Palliative Care Services Dr. Julia Wildish says she thinks it will make a huge difference for patients.

She says they spend a lot of time thinking about how sick they are so getting outside in a beautiful space will help them forget about that for a while.

The creation of the outdoor space was the longtime dream of many staff members including the late Tim Cameron former CEO of the Regional Hospital Foundation.

It's located on 3B North in the Palliative Care Unit at the Regional Hospital in Saint John.
