Accompanied by his wife, Sibi Blazic, Bale spent about ten minutes with each person. According to the hospital’s interim president Bill Voloch, and reported by the Denver Post:
The patients were really happy to meet Bale. They are obviously big fans of his movies. They wanted to see Batman and were really pleased to see Bale.

I am probably one of the biggest Batman fans ever. It was amazing, actually, to get to meet him. I think it’s really great he came out here. It was touching.
