Hospital receives teddy bear donation from local jeweler

Bolingbrook – A cuddly black-and-white teddy bear will be given to each baby born and each pediatric patient admitted to Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital, thanks to a donation from Helzberg Diamonds in Bolingbrook. The jeweler donated 98 of the stuffed animals to the Bolingbrook Hospital Foundation last month.


“We’re grateful to Helzberg Diamonds for this gift,” said Derek Cazeau, executive director of the Bolingbrook Hospital Foundation. “These bears are wonderful keepsakes to distribute to all of the new babies being born at our hospital.”


More than 500 babies have been born at Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital since it opened in January, far exceeding hospital administrators’ initial projections. New projections estimate that more than 700 babies will be delivered by the year’s end.


“Because Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital has been such a welcome addition to our community, we wanted to show our appreciation,” said Glenda Loeschen, manager of Helzberg Diamonds, located at the Promenade.
