Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta receives gift from Walmart, Sam’s Club

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta recently received more than $1.2 million from funds raised by Walmart and Sam’s Club in 2017, according to a press release. The gift supports Children’s Center for Advanced Pediatrics, which opened its doors on July 24, as well as the patients who receive care in the new building. Walmart’s gift was a result of its cumulative 2017 fundraising efforts, including its register campaign which returns on Aug. 27.

Walmart and Sam’s Club will kick off their five-week register campaign on August 27 encouraging customers to make donations to their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, including Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta in the Atlanta area. Donations directly impact the lives of each family served by Children’s and support many initiatives.

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta opened its Center for Advanced Pediatrics on July 24. The Center for Advanced Pediatrics, a 260,000-square-foot outpatient, non-emergency facility, is the only one of its kind in Georgia and brings

together multiple pediatric clinics, programs and specialists under one roof. The Center for Advanced Pediatrics aims to provide a better way to treat children and teens with chronic diseases and complex care needs.

The opening of the Center for Advanced Pediatrics is now able to provide care across more than 20 pediatric specialties, with more than 250 rooms for patient care, exams, consults and procedures in this eight-floor outpatient facility.
