The Louis Capano Family Foundation recently donated $225,000 to Exceptional Care for Children, Delaware's first and only residential, pediatric skilled nursing facility that cares for children from all over the State of Delaware and across the Mid-Atlantic region.
This gift will support ECC's plans to construct a contiguous 22-bed bridge unit building on its existing Newark campus. This new building will give ECC the opportunity to continue to care for residents into adolescence and young adulthood.
Exceptional Care for Children was selected as the 2019 beneficiary for the foundation’s golf outing held Sept. 16.
“Exceptional Care for Children is unique in its purpose, mission, and resident population as a whole, which sets us apart from other healthcare providers. In order to continue to meet the unique needs of our children as they age, our organization plans to construct a contiguous building on our campus that will eventually be home to our adolescents and young adults,” said Tracie Martin, RN, MSN, ECC’s interim administrator/director of nursing. “A gift of this size is transformational for our organization, and we are grateful that the Louis Capano Family Foundation recognizes the growing needs of medically fragile children and their families in our region.”
“The skill and dedication of the ECC staff is extraordinary,” said Louis Capano III, president and CEO, Capano Management. “We are proud the tournament and this gift will help support one of the few pediatric skilled nursing facilities in the nation striving to give their young residents as normal a life as possible despite their medical challenges.”
