New name, logo revealed for Children's Hospital at Memorial

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The new name and logo of the Children's Hospital at Memorial Health was unveiled on Thursday evening.

It will be the Willett Children's Hospital. Named after Cynthia and Dwaine Willett who donated $5 million, helping Memorial reach its $20 million campaign launched in 2014.

It will include dedicated operating rooms and a 24/7 emergency room.

"It means a lot. It's going to give to thousands of children for many years to come,” said Willett.

"Having the free standing children's hospital will give us a special and unique space only for kids and it will allow us to expand our services for emergency services for general outpatient services and really to give families more space when they're with their children,” said Memorial Health CEO Maggie Gill.

They'll break ground on the hospital in just a few months and it will open in May of 2017.
