Corporate Gift Will Contribute to New Multipurpose Sports and Recreation Area

OKLAHOMA CITY (Jan. 4, 2021) – CareSource Oklahoma is set to make a $100,000 donation to The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital (TCCRH) for its new adaptive recreation field at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2021 at the campus in Bethany, Okla.

The adaptive outfield and play area is part of a $4.7 million project for a new Activities for Daily Living (ADL) center where children of differing abilities can explore, experiment and practice all of life’s important skills in a safe and realistic environment. The ADL center will be further enhanced by the multipurpose youth sports and adaptive recreation area designed specifically for children with special needs.

“We are honored to partner with The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital and contribute to making this recreational area a reality,” said Bill Baker, CareSource Oklahoma CEO and Market Leader. “Making an investment that will support and promote the well-being and quality of life for so many in our community is important to us as we continue to support the hospital’s expansion plans.”

TCCRH recently began the development of the ADL center, located within the campus of the children’s hospital, with the purpose of helping children with special needs and their families learn and prepare for re-entry into their homes and the broader community at-large.

“The positive impact the ADL center and the multipurpose field and recreation area will have on children throughout the region will be remarkable and unprecedented,” said Josh L. Trimble, TCCRH Executive Vice President and Chief of Foundation Management. “Through the generosity of our corporate partners, we look forward to the successful opening of the center and furthering the hospital’s mission of equipping children with special health needs to blossom in new and meaningful ways.”

The plan for the recreation area includes establishing an all-accessible multipurpose baseball field, a water splash pad and a general playground area with adaptive swings specifically designed for children with wheelchairs.
