VAN NUYS, Calif.--()--Valley Presbyterian Hospital is excited to announce that City National Bank recently donated much-needed items to the Pediatrics Department. The addition of electronic, gaming and entertainment systems specifically augments recreational activities that the unit’s Playroom has to offer to its teenage patient population.

City National Bank representatives graciously presented their gifts to Valley Presbyterian Hospital’s Pediatrics Department. About 20 City National Bank employees teamed up together to purchase and provide funds for items to benefit the Pediatrics Department patients and their families.

“City National Bank chose to donate to Valley Presbyterian Hospital’s Pediatrics Department because we support the hospital’s goal to provide compassionate health care services to children in our community,” said City National Bank Senior Vice President and Commercial Banking Advisor George Hill. “It is a worthy cause that struck a deep, emotional chord with us and our staff team.”

The items broaden the Playroom’s scope of appeal to engage its teenage patients, providing them with interactive entertainment, a way to complete schoolwork during hospitalization and an enhancement to their overall hospital experience. The list of donated items includes:

  • 32” JVC television set
  • Laptop with Microsoft Office software
  • Nintendo DS gaming system
  • X-Box 360 gaming system
  • DVD player
  • 15 DVDs

“We deeply appreciate these gifts from City National Bank,” said Dr. Peter J. Koetters, Chairman of the Pediatrics Department. “The Pediatrics Department at Valley Presbyterian Hospital strives to make patients feel welcome, secure and comfortable. I truly think these donations will help ease the fear and stress that a child might experience during hospitalization.”
