WESTFIELD, NJ - Pediatric patients got to put their creative talents to work recently.
The law firm of Lindabury, McCormick, Estabrook & Cooper, P.C., teamed up with Children’s Specialized Hospital of Mountainside to host a contest that gave the hospital's young patients the chance to help design the firm’s holiday card.
Children from the Outpatient Brain Injury Program in Mountainside submitted drawings in this year’s contest. Employees of the firm voted for the best drawing to be reproduced as the firm’s holiday card.
Kelsey, age 11, from the Mountainside site of Children's Specialized, created this year’s card. Lindabury shareholder Edward J. Frisch presented the 14 artists with awards for their drawings two weeks before Christmas. The firm provided presents to all of the children who participated.
“We love this program and are very fortunate that the Hospital continues to team up with us year after year to make it happen,” Frisch said. “It’s a great way to approach the holidays with the achievements of young children in mind.”
Children’s Specialized Hospital serves children affected by brain injury, spinal cord injury, premature birth, autism, developmental delays, and life-changing illnesses. Children’s Specialized Hospital has ten sites in New Jersey and treats 20,000 children each year, making it the largest pediatric rehabilitation system of its kind in the nation.
