Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia has chosen a name for its soon-to-open inpatient medical center in King of Prussia.
The 250,000-square-foot pediatric hospital will be known as the Middleman Family Pavilion at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, King of Prussia.
The name of the 52-bed hospital, which is set to officially open in early 2022, reflects what CHOP is describing as a “significant philanthropic gift” from Stanley C. Middleman, his wife Roslyn and the entire Middleman family.
The amount of the gift is being kept confidential.
“We are truly grateful to have Stan, Roslyn and the Middleman family help us write the next chapter of our storied 166-year history,” said Madeline Bell, CHOP’s CEO. “Their transformational gift will ensure that even more children are able to receive CHOP’s world class care, close to home, and that we can continue to serve children in our community and across the region for generations to come.”
Stanley C. Middleman is CEO of Freedom Mortgage and a member of CHOP’s Foundation Board of Overseers, a group of volunteers who support the hospital’s philanthropic efforts.
In a statement provided by CHOP, Middleman said, “We are honored our gift has enabled CHOP to expand and open a second hospital that will offer children in the suburbs of Philadelphia world-class pediatric care.”
CHOP said the Middleman family and others have contributed $65 million toward its $75 million fundraising goal for the new hospital, which is adjacent to CHOP’s existing specialty care center in King of Prussia.
