Speediatrics Unit Celebrates 10th Anniversary
Date:11/10/2010

0 more receiving critical care in the area's only Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.

The environment created by the Speediatrics unit provides a much-needed diversion to young patients undergoing intensive treatments, lessening the intimidation factor that often comes with hospital visits. Each waiting room, hallway, nurse station and patient room has a motorsports theme, including race cars, checkered flags and colorful cartoon characters.

Additionally, each young patient admitted to the unit receives a Speediatrics-themed teddy bear specially designed by Betty Jane France and donated by The NASCAR Foundation, to provide a little extra comfort throughout their intensive treatments and recovery.

"Our pediatrics department, which includes the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, provides vital and exceptional services to East Central Florida residents that are only available at Halifax Health," said Feasel. "And through this wonderful partnership with the France Family and The NASCAR Foundation, Speediatrics continues to serve so many families in our community who might otherwise have to go outside of the area for this specialized care."

The NASCAR Foundation initiates a wide range of annual and ongoing fundraising efforts to support Speediatrics. Since 2006, The NASCAR Foundation has donated more than $720,000 to the Speediatrics units in Daytona Beach and Miami. These contributions are made possible in part by funds raised through the participation of many great businesses and fans supporting NASCAR Day.  

Speediatrics has also become an important part of the entire NASCAR community's commitment to helping others. NASCAR drivers and other personalities from the sport make frequent visits to the Speediatrics units. Also, NASCAR and International Speedway Corporation employees have made commitments to support the Speediatrics unit through donations and volunteer service.
