Broward Health Coral Springs is pleased to announce that Broward Health Children’s Hospital has been renamed the Salah Foundation Children’s Hospital at Broward Health. A formal unveiling ceremony took place and signage throughout the hospital reflects the name change in our pediatric areas. The name change is in honor of the Salah Foundation’s generous $10 million, dollar-for-dollar, all-or-nothing challenge grant where the Broward Health Foundation successfully raised another $12 million from the community to match this extraordinary gift. The ambitious, capital campaign raised more than $22 million toward the $52 million renovation and expansion of our children’s hospital at Broward Health Medical Center. Other major contributors to the campaign include Mrs. Lorraine Thomas, Pediatrix Medical Group and EmCare. Pictured is Noreen Salah Burpee of the Salah Foundation.
