Kosair Children's Hospital receives $6 million

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Kosair Children's Hospital has received a gift of more than $6 million.  The gift was part of a $130 million pledge from Kosair Charities.

This year's donation will largely go to technology dependent areas of the hospital to pay for equipment in operating and emergency rooms, and the radiology department.  It will also help families offset the cost of care, regardless of their ability to pay.

Jerry Ward of Kosair Charities explains, "During this holiday season, as we reflect upon all that we have to be thankful for, let us remember that Christmas is not so much about opening presents as it is opening our hearts."

In addition to its longstanding relationship with the hospital, Kosair Charities supports nearly 100 other agencies in Kentuckiana.
