Leadership from the Junior League of Nashville and the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt met today to celebrate the Junior League’s commitment to give $1.5 million to the children’s hospital between now and 2022. The gift will support the Junior League Home Arts and Entertainment Program, an effort of the Child Life Program, which works with patients and families to promote a positive medical experience. The gift also will help the Growing to New Heights Campaign, which supports the hospital’s upcoming four-floor expansion.
“The Junior League of Nashville is grateful for the opportunity to reinvest in our decades-long partnership with Vanderbilt,” said Jennifer Hill, the group’s president. “The opportunity to contribute to the Growing to New Heights Campaign continues JLN’s legacy of providing access to state-of-the-art medical treatment, while our gift to Child Life ensures that patients and families will have the wrap-around care that we know supports families and an improved patient experience.”
