Jennifer Lawrence Donates $2 million to Kosairs Children’s Hospital Heart Center
The Jennifer Lawrence Foundation is donating $2 million to Kosair Children’s Hospital. In addition, she is challenging the community to raise an additional $2 million. The money will go towards a proposed unit which will be named the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. You can donate to the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation Cardiac Intensive Care Unit here.
It will feature private rooms dedicated to children recovering from heart procedures, open heart surgery including heart transplant, heart failure and other conditions requiring intensive care. The new 14-bed unit will offer space for families to stay with their children. It will be staffed by additional specialists with cardiac critical care training and experience, dedicated nursing staff and other professionals focused solely on heart care. Research has shown that a unit such as this can improve a child’s recovery. These improvements, while well worth it to offer better care for children with heart issues, come at a cost.
