Generosity takes children’s rehab to the next level

October 28, 2016

Thanks to a $470,000 gift from Rhonda and Thomas Peed of the Peed Foundation and Sandhills Publishing, Madonna has taken a major step forward by relocating and renovating its outpatient pediatric therapy services.

The opening of the St. Cecilia’s Outpatient Pavilion in October 2013 included the construction of a pediatric therapy gym, private treatment rooms – including a feeding and swallowing room, and a reception area with an engaging 250-gallon fish aquarium.

The new outpatient facility also features a 1,850-square-foot outdoor therapeutic courtyard and playground. One of the highlights of the playground is a wheelchair swing.

The renovation also allowed for the relocation of Kit’s Academy Therapeutic Learning Center, an on-site school helps children be successful as they transition back into the classroom.

“We are most grateful to Rhonda and Tom Peed for their long history of support of Madonna, but especially for this gift that will help transform the lives of our youngest patients,” said Madonna President and CEO Marsha Lommel.
