CINCINNATI -- Big things are set to happen at Children’s Hospital.

Cincinnati Children's Hospital announced today that it will receive a $20M gift over the next eight years from the Convalescent Hospital for Children. This is the single largest donation ever made to the hospital. 

“This extraordinary gift will make it possible for us to better meet the growing need for mental health and long-term care for kids and teens in our area,” said Michael Fisher, president and CEO of Cincinnati Children’s.  “We are extremely grateful to the Convalescent Hospital board for their support.”

The gift is expected to fund the costs of two projects:

1. To expand facilities at the College Hill Campus, which includes renovation of the exisiting facility and to construct a new three-story unit for residential patients. An estimated $11M of the $20M will go towards this project.

2. $9M will go to providing long-term care targeted toward the Liberty Township Campus. 

More details on the specifics of the projects will be released at a later date. 

Children’s Hospital opened in 1883 and is rated one of the best pediatric care facilities in the nation.
