Niswonger Signature Events
Because children are growing and developing, children's health care needs are constantly changing. They need health care that is tailored to their unique needs, involves their parents from start to finish and is provided in places designed to be kid-sized and child-friendly. That's why the children of Southern Appalachia need Niswonger Children's Hospital.
This hospital was designed to provide for the unique needs of children and combines compassionate, personalized care with state-of-the-art technology. Niswonger Children's Hospital is dedicated to ensuring that every child has access to high-quality, cost-effective health care services.
The region's first-ever Radiothon to support Niswonger Children's Hospital finished on a high note, with fundraising surpassing the $100,000 goal.
