Beautifying Bennett

13 Oct

Beaumont Health System’s Department of Orthopaedic Surgery partnered with Playworks Detroit to transform the playground at Bennett Elementary School in Detroit into a colorful, safe space for play.

This community service project began as a vision of Harry N. Herkowitz, M.D., former chairman of Orthopaedic Surgery for Beaumont Health System, prior to his death in June. More than 20 Beaumont volunteers came together to make that vision a reality in honor of him.

Bennett Elementary School, located in Southwest Detroit, now has  a colorful home base circle, a hopscotch course, a foursquare court and a playground mural.
