Jeff Gordon Foundation Makes Contribution to NorthEast Children's Hospital
Concord, NC, May 27, 2005 - The Jeff Gordon Foundation announced a significant gift towards the new children's hospital currently under construction at NorthEast Medical Center in Concord, North Carolina.
In a special ceremony held today, Jeff Gordon personally announced his foundation's gift towards the building of the new, 26,800 sq. ft. facility-soon to become the Jeff Gordon Children's Hospital at NorthEast Medical Center. Hospital officials expect the new facility to be opened for patients in late 2006.
"The racing community in this region has done so much for me and I wanted to do something in return," said Gordon, a four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion. "The NorthEast Medical Center is consistently rated in the Top 100 hospitals in the country and when I heard of their plans for a children's hospital, I wanted to lend my support to the project. The gift from The Jeff Gordon Foundation will help ensure the best medical care for the racing families in this community, especially their children."
"We are pleased and honored to have the Children's Hospital at NorthEast Medical Center join the growing list of organizations now supported by The Jeff Gordon Foundation, which is dedicated to working with courageous children and their families," said Laurence Hinsdale, President/CEO of the medical center.
NorthEast Medical Center, bordered by Charlotte to the south and Winston-Salem to the north, is the only North Carolina Hospital to be named as a "100 Top Hospital" for the past four consecutive years. "We are proud today to link our organization's reputation as a quality healthcare facility dedicated to compassionate care and clinical excellence with The Jeff Gordon Foundation whose mission is to focus on children and families being the heart and soul of our future," says Laurence Hinsdale.
Other charitable partners of The Jeff Gordon Foundation include The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
