Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) today announced that it has received a significant philanthropic gift from Stanley C. Middleman, his wife Roslyn and the entire Middleman family to name CHOP’s second inpatient hospital, located in King of Prussia, PA. With more than 250,000 square feet of space dedicated solely to the care of children, The Middleman Family Pavilion at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, King of Prussia will officially open in early 2022.
“We are truly grateful to have Stan, Roslyn and the Middleman family help us write the next chapter of our storied 166-year history,” said Madeline Bell, President and CEO of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. “Their transformational gift will ensure that even more children are able to receive CHOP’s world class care, close to home, and that we can continue to serve children in our community and across the region for generations to come.”
Stanley C. Middleman, President and CEO of Freedom Mortgage, and his family are longtime supporters of CHOP. Mr. Middleman is a member of CHOP’s Foundation Board of Overseers, a group comprised of volunteers who champion and advance the hospital’s mission through their leadership of philanthropic efforts. In addition to this gift, Freedom Mortgage and its employees are making donations to purchase toys for children staying inpatient at CHOP this holiday season.
Middleman said, “We are honored our gift has enabled CHOP to expand and open a second hospital that will offer children in the suburbs of Philadelphia world class pediatric care. We are a family that takes pride in supporting local communities across the country where our company, Freedom Mortgage, operates.”
Many others have joined the Middleman family in helping to fund this historic CHOP milestone. Together, supporters have contributed $65 million toward CHOP’s $75 million fundraising goal for the King of Prussia hospital.
