Congratulations to BASF Corp., which recently donated $100,000 as part of its $500,000 pledge to Children's Specialized Hospital, the largest pediatric rehabilitation hospital in the country. The company's gift will be used to build a gym for children recovering from serious accidents, illnesses and injuries who need to undergo therapy. The facility will be part of PSE&G Children's Specialized Hospital, a 60-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Mountainside, N.J., that will open in December. “The therapy gym is at the heart of this building,” says Philip Salerno III, president and chief development officer of the Children's Specialized Hospital Foundation, a non-profit group that supports the institution. “Because of the generosity of our partner BASF, children living at the hospital will have an extraordinary place to learn to walk, run, and move in a new way following a serious accident or illness.”
Hats off to BASF
