Providence Tarzana Medical Center of Tarzana, Calif., is using a $500,000 donation from the Chase Foundation to create a new playroom and program for pediatric patients and their families. The program will be staffed by a Child Life specialist who will address the social, emotional and developmental needs of pediatric patients and provide their parents with resources. The family of Chase Richards, a child who died of brain cancer at age two, established the foundation in his memory in 1992.
The Hench Foundation has granted $200,000 to Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center's Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center in Burbank, Calif.
