About Children's Specialized Hospital

"Children's Specialized Hospital provides care for over 10,000 children each year, with the number of outpatients topping 8,000, a number that has more than doubled over the past two years," said Amy Mansue, president and CEO for Children's Specialized Hospital. "Children's Specialized is committed to providing comprehensive, coordinated rehabilitative care to help every child in need reach their maximum potential. Kohl's has been a terrific partner and supporter of the hospital and this gift represents yet another example of their commitment to the children of New Jersey." The donation was announced today at an event that highlighted the renovation project at the hospital's Fanwood facility. Kohl's executives and Children's Specialized staff joined forces to announce the initiative with a ceremonial "wall bashing" and festive Halloween party for Fanwood outpatients and their families. "Kohl's introduced the Kohl's Cares for Kids? program to promote children's health and educational opportunities, and is committed to playing an active role in communities throughout New Jersey," said Julie Gardner, senior vice president of marketing for Kohl's Department Stores. "We're proud of the partnerships we've created with children's hospitals across the country, and are excited to join Children's Specialized Hospital in this endeavor." Other Children's Specialized Hospital efforts supported through Kohl's gifts include a full-scale renovation of the lobby at the hospital's flagship facility in Mountainside, as well as the creation of a new wheelchair accessible playground. Kohl's commitment to Children's Specialized Hospital is made possible through the Kohl's Cares for Kids? program, which raises funds for children's hospitals through the sale of special gift items. Net profits from the sales go to children's hospitals in the market areas served by Kohl's. Kohl's community outreach also includes Kohl's Kids Who Care?, an annual youth volunteer recognition program, fundraising gift cards for local schools and non-profit youth groups, as well as an associate program to encourage volunteerism. Based in Menomonee Falls, Wis., Kohl's is a family-focused, value-oriented specialty department store offering moderately priced national brand apparel, shoes, accessories and home products.
