One of the top NASCAR drivers for more than two decades, Jeff Gordon is a four-time Sprint Cup Series champ and a three-time Daytona 500 winner. He then started a foundation to fight cancer. The foundation spends more than $1.4 million yearly through grants at the Jeff Gordon Children’s Hospital in Concord, N.C. The hospital at CMC-NorthEast has been designed specifically with children in mind. They have created a friendly environment for pediatric patients and their families, knowing that children have different needs best served in a space entirely devoted to their care.
The Hospital offers a peaceful, serene setting in which nature is the primary surrounding, with special touches that include a sculpture garden, aquariums, and the use of natural patterns and textures throughout the facility. These elements help promote a healing environment proven to reduce anxiety for pediatric patients and their families. Upon arrival at the Children’s Hospital, beautiful bronzed statues of children at play greet patients and guests.
