BB&T Foundation pledges $75,000 to CHH Children's Hospital project

The BB&T Foundation of West Virginia has pledged $75,000 to the Children's Hospital Project at Cabell Huntington Hospital.

To recognize the gift, a twin room in the hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit will be marked with a plaque commemorating BB&T Foundation's generosity.

"Cabell Huntington Hospital is a valuable partner to the entire region in medical care and to Marshall University's School of Medicine," said David Helmer, Senior Vice President for BB&T in West Virginia. "The plans for the new Children's Hospital energize potential new additions to the pediatric staff and will serve many families in the region."

Through reconstruction of the hospital's fifth floor Pediatrics area and the construction of a new Children's Hospital entrance from Hal Greer Boulevard, this project will create a state-of-the-art and child-friendly space where children will come to receive their medical care.

"We are impressed with the great passion Cabell Huntington Hospital has for Neonatal Intensive Care and Pediatrics expertise overall," said Phyllis Arnold, President of BB&T Corp. in West Virginia. "The Children's Hospital will highlight this commitment, further enhancing their pediatric reputation."

"BB&T's dedication to the children's health and education is extraordinary," said David Graley, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Cabell Huntington Hospital Foundation. "Phyllis and David have personally spent a great deal of time understanding our project. It is exactly this kind of partnership that will make our dream of a children's hospital a reality."

More than $5 million in pledges and donations have already been committed to the Children's Hospital project at Cabell Huntington Hospital.
