The Sally Gammon Fund For Pediatrics

May 2013

In honor of Sally Gammon, who is retiring after 16 years as Good Shepherd’s president and chief executive officer, Good Shepherd is pleased to announce The Sally Gammon Fund for Pediatrics, dedicated to providing annual support for pediatrics, a program near and dear to Sally’s heart.

Why is your support of this fund needed?

During Sally’s tenure, Good Shepherd’s highly acclaimed pediatric program for children has grown by 300 percent. That includes the opening of the Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital Pediatric Unit in Bethlehem, the only one of its kind in the Lehigh Valley. This unit, as all our services for children, has been a priceless gift to thousands of children and their families.

Due to the amount of charitable care underwritten every year, a key component of Good Shepherd’s mission, the pediatric program, runs more than a $1 million deficit.

Donor support like yours helps ensure that we continue to meet the growing demand for pediatric services for children with complex and developmental disabilities.

That includes:

  • Serving more than 5,000 children in 9 locations
  • Conducting more than 53,000 outpatient visits with 4 physicians and 60 therapists
  • • Providing intensive inpatient rehabilitation for 135 children whose average length of stay is 41 days

With your gift of $250 or more, your name will be in a special “Honor Roll of Donors” remembrance that will  be presented to Sally.

Help us honor Sally’s legacy of love for children with disabilities.
