Check Presentation - Sundt Donates to Child Life Services

Sundt Construction made a generous donation to support El Paso Children's Hospital's (EPCH) Child Life Therapeutic Arts Program. The program provides hospitalized children with art media/crafts in groups and at the bedside for patients whose condition prevents them from leaving their rooms. Children suffering of serious illnesses including cancer, esperience a range of physical and emotional symptoms requiring support and activities. Each art project is tailored to the needs and requests of the child. Child Life Specialists support each child's emotional, social and cognitive growth by using developmental interventions and play.

EPCH is the only non-profit children's hospital serving our community's poorest kids and has served 106,000 or 1 in 2 El Paso children.

Founded in 1890, Sundt Construction is 100 percent employee-owned and is consistently ranked among 100 largest general contractors in the United States.

"El Paso Children's Hospital continues to go above and beyond to provide exceptional services for their children, providing a more holistic approach to modern medicine," said Joseph Riccillo, Sundt El Paso Director. "Child Life Therapeutic Arts Program is an excellent example of the types of services offered designed to bring joy and comfort to children facing serious illness."
