HUNTINGTON -– Jenkins Fenstermaker recently pledged $25,000 to the proposed Children's Hospital project at Cabell Huntington Hospital.
This generous pledge has been recognized by dedicating a GE Healthcare OmniBed in the hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for seriously ill newborns. The new NICU opened in February 2008 and is the first phase of the proposed Children's Hospital.
"Jenkins Fenstermaker chose to make this pledge to improve our regional community and the lives of many children into the future," said Jenkins Fenstermaker CEO, Barry Taylor. "The Children's Hospital at Cabell Huntington Hospital is a tremendously exciting project that we fully support. Each of our Members deeply believes that this pledge is an investment into not just a building, but the health of our extremely vulnerable children."
The proposed Children's Hospital will include a new entrance specifically for young patients and a complete renovation of the fifth floor Pediatrics Unit and the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
"We are grateful for Jenkins Fenstermaker's commitment to improving the care we provide for our youngest patients," said David Graley, vice president and chief operating officer of the Cabell Huntington Hospital Foundation. "The Members of the firm took the time to understand our mission and quality of care of the region's children. They are wonderful corporate partners as we move toward expanded services and facilities."
The first phase of the new Children's Hospital opened in February 2008 with the unveiling of the 36-bed Neonatal Intensive Care Unit on the fifth floor of the North Patient Tower. The Cabell Huntington Hospital Foundation is raising $12 million for the estimated $15 million project through the end of 2011.
