Children's Specialized Hospital Receives $20,000 Grant from Summit Area Public Foundation


SUMMIT, NJ - Children’s Specialized Hospital in Mountainside has received a $20,457 grant from the Summit Area Public Foundation.  The funding will support Children’s Specialized Hospital’s ambulatory care center to purchase innovative new equipment.

Children’s Specialized Hospital is the largest pediatric rehabilitation system of its kind in the nation, and treats 22,000 children with special needs each year at its 12 different sites in New Jersey.  The Summit Area Public Foundation is a community foundation that fosters philanthropy in the Summit area by identifying local needs and offering donors flexible ways to make a difference in the lives of their neighbors.  The Summit Area Public Foundation has been a supporter of Children’s Specialized Hospital for the past two decades. They have given Children’s Specialized Hospital a total of $278,000.

This year’s funding will support the purchase of new equipment for the newly remodeled ambulatory care center at Children’s Specialized Hospital.  The expansion has allowed room for an increase in outpatient services ensuring the highest quality of pediatric care for children with autism, cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities.  With support from the Summit Area Public Foundation, Children’s Specialized Hospital will purchase three new laptops for the new medical rooms, two treatment tables, and a lift system.  These products will supply a more efficient patient care system and assure patient safety.

Philip Salerno III, president and chief development officer for Children’s Specialized Hospital Foundation, gives a special recognition to John Cooper, president of the Summit Area Public Foundation for the continued support and generous contribution.

“This generous gift will enable us to acquire essential equipment for the ambulatory care center at Children’s Specialized Hospital’s Mountainside location which will strengthen the ability to provide quality pediatric health care and enrich the quality of life for the children we treat and their families,“ said Salerno.

The Hausmann Powermatic treatment table allows patients to easily transfer to the table because it raises and lowers with a push of a button.  Patients feel more at ease with more comfort and safety using this special table.

The Arjo Maxi Move Combination lift system transfers patients using hydraulic power from the examination table to their wheelchair. This product is used for patients with limited mobility and provides great assistance and increased safety transferring the patients.
