Arkansas Children's Hospital is 100 years old

It's a birthday celebration for one of the best hospitals in the country and THE best children's facility in Arkansas.Arkansas Children's Hospital

Our children are our future and medicine has made great strides in the past 100 years.  Arkansas Children's has been a major part of that and continues to be, not only a facility to care for our severely ill children, but a teaching hospital, also.

Wikipedia has this to say:

he Arkansas Children's Hospital (ACH) is a pediatric hospital in Little RockArkansas. It is the only pediatric Level I trauma center in Arkansas and the sixth largest in the United States, serving children from birth to age twenty-one. ACH is the pediatric affiliate of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and serves as a teaching hospital under the UAMS College of Medicine's Department of Pediatrics.[1][2] ACH staff consists of more than 500 physicians, 80 residents, and 3,500 support staff members. The campus spans 29 city blocks and has a floor space totaling over 1,200,000 square feet (110,000 m2).[2]
First Lady of Arkansas Hillary Rodham Clinton served on the board of the Arkansas Children's Hospital Legal Services from 1988 to 1992

This is a non-profit hospital saving the lives of many who would otherwise not have access to the special needs and treatments.
