Loma Linda University Children’s Health – Indio received $260,000 from The Coeta and Donald Barker Foundation earlier this month. The funds will be used to ensure the children of the Coachella Valley have access to quality pediatric and specialty care in their community.
President and CEO of the foundation, Nancy Harris, said The Coeta and Donald Barker Foundation is proud to support Loma Linda University Children's Health – Indio.
“This is a service that is extremely important to the families in the Coachella Valley,” Harris said. “It was a match made in Heaven after I was given a tour of the facility while still in construction and described all the medical services that would be available to the children in the Coachella Valley. We applaud Loma Linda for their success in this endeavor.”
It is the mission of the Barker Foundation to help fund nonprofit organizations devoted to education, culture, healthcare and social services.
Loma Linda University Health – Indio, Jill and Barry Golden Pavilion provides general and specialty services to children in the Coachella Valley, including well care and sick visits, chronic medical condition care and coordination, immunizations, dentistry, pulmonology, lab testing (lead, hemoglobin, urinalysis, blood sugar, pregnancy and rapid strep), and vision and hearing screening.
