Hacienda’s Jennifer Frost accepts a $10,000 grant from Pamela M. Keefe of NBAZ Charities.

Hacienda Children’s Hospital has been awarded a grant in the amount of $10,000 by NBAZ Charities.

The check was presented at the hospital’s campus in Mesa. Pamela M. Keefe, vice president, Non-Profit Relationship Manager for National Bank of Arizona, presented the check to Jennefer Frost, the hospital administrator for Hacienda Children’s Hospital in Mesa.

“We at Hacienda Children’s Hospital are so grateful for not only the financial gift of $10,000 from National Bank of Arizona but also the legacy of support they are creating as a newly formed charitable organization, benefiting many nonprofit organizations in Arizona,” remarked Ms. Frost.

She added, “National Bank of Arizona has made it possible for us to continue helping the children and families who have come to depend on us.”

Hacienda Children’s Hospital opened in August of 2015. The unique family-focused hospital provides transitional care for medically fragile children who need more time to heal while their parents are trained on how to care for them at home.

Each room in the 24-bed hospital has themed floor accents, ceiling designs, and colors and texture that complement one of the four themes: jungle, circus, playground and sky. The design elements express a playful nature that is nurturing to children while optimizing the patient and family experience.

The use of indoor and outdoor spaces, healing gardens, play areas, and bright colorful interiors provide a unique environment which enhances the healing process for patients and their families.

Hacienda HealthCare traces its roots to 1967 when it was founded in Phoenix as “Hacienda de los Angeles” and operated as a single facility serving three children.

Today, Hacienda HealthCare offers over 30 programs and services designed to address the medical and therapeutic needs of medically fragile infants, children, teens and young adults.
