For Immediate Release: December 14, 2016
AtlantiCare Young Professionals (AtlantiCare YP) presented a donation of nearly $5,000 on December 12 to the Stanley M. Grossman Pediatric Center at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center (ARMC) Atlantic City Campus Emergency Department to assist in funding its new children’s activity center & learning wall.
Members of the YP program were invited to a tour of the newly installed activity center, which includes one sensory learning wall, four adventure road wall activities, one magnetic activity table and replacement magnets. The activities are intended to encourage fine motor development.
“The addition of these activity centers in the patient rooms and waiting area have made a tremendous impact when a child finds themselves in need of emergency care,” said Mary Stapleton, clinical manager, ARMC City Campus Emergency Room. “We can’t thank the AtlantiCare YP members enough for their generosity.”
This year, the Young Professionals set a fundraising initiative to provide the Pediatric Emergency Department with the new activity center and furniture for the waiting area designed to offer a level of comfort during what could be moments of heightened stress for both children and family members. More than $8,000 was raised through AtlantiCare YP’s membership and event tickets.
The AtlantiCare YP program offers its members unique educational and networking experiences designed to support personal leadership growth and create peer connections. The events allow members to meet and learn from established local leaders; to learn to identify and address needs in our community; and to learn how to harness their energy and enthusiasm to improve the future of our community. Some of this year’s events included a Tuckahoe Brewery tour, Escape the Room experience, educational breakfast seminar at Ventnor Coffee, and a Night of Comedy at the Eagle Theatre in Hammonton.
