Tempur-Pedic Expands Support Of Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®)

Stocks in this article: TPX

"The impact of Tempur-Pedic's gift is immeasurable — we know that children cope better and heal faster when their families can be close by and Ronald McDonald Houses provide all the comforts of home, keeping families together while their child receives critical care at a nearby hospital. The additional mattress donations to Ronald McDonald Family Rooms will have an even broader impact, allowing families to stay together right in the hospital," said J.C. Gonzalez-Mendez, president and CEO, RMHC. "We are very grateful for Tempur-Pedic's generosity and ongoing support."

The Presbyterian Hospital staff was excited to learn about the continued efforts and bed donations. "This wonderful donation to the Ronald McDonald Family Room located in Presbyterian Hospital will give parents of critically ill children the ability to rest while staying at their child's bedside, enabling them to support their child through treatment and better communicate with the hospital's medical team," said Jennifer Landman, RN, interim administrator and nursing director, Children's Center, Presbyterian Hospital.
