The Bear Family Foundation has made a 1.75 million-dollar donation to The Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Sacred Heart. The donation is the single largest gift in the Bear Family Foundation’s 17-year history and Sacred Heart said its oncology unit will be named the Bear Family Foundation Pediatric Oncology Center for Hope. The new children’s hospital will be the only hospital in Northwest Florida that cares solely for children and babies and will begin accepting patients in May.
