Developer gives $1 million to Atlanta children's hospital

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, December 1, 2009

The family of Herman J. Russell, the namesake of large Atlanta development and construction firm H.J. Russell & Co., gave $1 million to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Hughes Spalding for hospital expansion. Russell told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution "this was our family’s chance to give a lasting gift that will ensure children now—and in the future—are cared for in a proper facility that has a pediatric focus, which is important since we know that children fare better when treated in a child-centered setting.” The gift is part of a $4.8 million critical-needs drive by the hospital.
