LOS ANGELES — Walgreens has made a $1.5 million gift to support clinical care and research programs at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Walgreens was recognized on Wednesday with the unveiling of special signage during a commemoration ceremony in the hospital’s popular Family Pantry, located in CHLA’s Marion and John E. Anderson Pavilion.
“I want to thank Walgreens for this generous gift to support the hospital’s mission,” said Richard Cordova, president and CEO of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. “This gift will mean so much to the patients and families relying on CHLA. It will allow us to provide world-class pediatric care, conduct ground-breaking medical research, provide community outreach to underserved youth and train the next generation of pediatricians and nurses.”
Walgreens has been a hospital supporter since 2011. Walgreens has raised almost $600,000 in support of CHLA.
“We are proud to partner with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to care for sick children and their families,” said Scott Corley, Walgreens VP operations and community development. “Walgreens is committed to helping the communities we serve, and in partnership with our stores, employees and customers, we can all work together to make sure every child has access to high quality, affordable care so they have the opportunity to get, stay and live well. ”
