BAYADA Client Gabby reacts to her newly remodeled bedroom while marketing specialist Natalie Simmons, contractor Scott D'Antonio, and mom Sarah look on. 

On a sunny, winter afternoon, Gloucester County, NJ resident Sarah P. picked up her daughter Gabby from the school bus and drove a short distance to the home of her parents. While Gabby enjoyed Grandma and Grandpa’s love and attention, Sarah had ulterior motives for the unexpected mid-afternoon visit. She didn’t want Gabby to know that a team of electricians, painters, and contractors had literally taken over her home, adding beautiful aesthetic touches to her daughter’s bedroom and the hall bathroom and, most importantly, creating a safer environment.

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) took on a transformation of sorts last week, when a Philadelphia-based radio station set up a live studio broadcast in the middle of the bright, cheerful, atrium lobby. It was all part of the “98.1 WOGL Loves Our Kids Radiothon”, an annual event that has raised over $7 million for CHOP since its inception 17 years ago.

BAYADA Pediatrics, a specialty of BAYADA Home Health Care and a long-standing partner with CHOP, was proud to help make the Radiothon a success by serving as a major sponsor for three years running. In addition to their financial support, BAYADA staff volunteered to answer phones during the event.
