Banner Children’s Hospital Donation: The Matt Leinart Foundation pledged $500,000 over the next 5 years to fund the new Children’s Hospital at Banner. Banner Children’s Hospital reassures a frightened child in a hospital and his or her anxious parents more than the comforting touch of an expert’s hand—especially when that expert is able to see through the eyes of that child. We understand the unique needs of children, and provide kid‐and family‐friendly care in our emergency departments, outpatient centers and in hospital rooms.
