Lynchburg, Danville, Roanoke- Here to Help Kids - - ABC13

Campaign for a New Centra Pediatric Center: Why?

The children in the ABC 13 viewing area deserve the best care we can give. ABC 13, WSET is dedicated to the kids in our community and want to be a part of educating you on how to help kids receive the highest quality health care possible.

Historically, pediatric services have been located at Centra Virginia Baptist Hospital. The ongoing challenge is that the pediatric unit is located 3.3 miles from Centra Lynchburg General Hospital Emergency Department. The Emergency Department sees over 18,000 children per year under the age of 17 in our community.

To reduce the time necessary to transport a child from the Emergency Department to the Pediatric Unit, Centra is undertaking a major renovation project. This eleven bed pediatric center at Centra Lynchburg General Hospital would be in close proximity to the Emergency Department.

The total cost for the project is $600,000. Our goal here at WSET is to raise $100,000. Your support is needed to make that happen.
