Washington Post, September 16, 2009

Washington, DC-based Children's National Medical Center will receive $150 million from the government of Abu Dhabi, a gift that the hospital hopes to use to dramatically change pediatric surgery. The donation has the potential to transform Children's Hospital, enabling it to hire more than 100 surgeons, researchers and staff members over the next few years, hospital officials said. The hospital treats thousands of children and performs 15,000 surgeries each year.
