St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital Receives Special ‘Hope On Wheels’ Grant



St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital (SJCH) at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center (SJRMC) in Paterson, New Jersey, is honored to have been recognized by Hyundai Motor America as a 2013 Hyundai ‘Hope on Wheels’ Scholar Grant recipient. St. Joseph’s is one of 41 children’s hospitals in the nation to receive this one year $75,000 grant, awarded to doctors at leading institutions in pediatric cancer research.


The grant application and proposal, written and submitted by the SJRMC Foundation, states that the grant will be used to fully develop a Cancer Survivorship Program at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital in order to better address the multi-disciplinary needs of the aging pediatric cancer survivors.

The award presentation was two-fold. First Dave O’Brien, Marketing Manager for Hyundai Motor America, along with local Hyundai dealers, officially presented SJCH with the $75,000 grant check. After the check presentation, SJCH Pediatric Hematology/Oncology patients were invited to participate in the ‘Hope on Wheels’ Handprint Ceremony in which they had the chance to leave their handprints on a 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe, the official car of the ‘Hope on Wheels’ program.
