We are really excited to share about a new program that we are starting here at Bethany Children’s thanks to a special grant provided by the Cal Ripkin, Sr. Foundation. The program is called Badges for Baseball and here’s a quick description.

The Badges for Baseball program joins youth and community heroes to play and learn – building positive connections in the process. In this program, mentors from our local communities will use team sports to teach valuable life lessons, build relationships, and increase opportunities for children with disabilities to participate in adapted sports. Thanks to the Badges program, Bethany Children’s Health Center will receive sports equipment, training, ongoing support, and life skills education materials. Staff and volunteers will work alongside mentors to create an atmosphere of enrichment, opportunity, and fun for the children we serve.

We are hosting a Badges for Baseball kickoff event for inpatients on Tuesday, May 24 from 2-3:30PM. Please RSVP to your child’s special education teacher if you would like to attend. *Siblings ages 12 and older may attend the event, but are required to follow our general mask policy.

Previous Announcements

    Beginning March 4, 2022 the General Mask Policy will be displayed on digital signage televisions, and on signage at all entry points to keep staff and visitors informed on our status as a hospital.

    Please take note and abide by the General Mask Policy (applies also to volunteers, students and visitors) as indicated for each color status on the table below. Employees who have an approved accommodation must abide by the Accommodation Policy for each color status. The Hospital’s COVID-19 Task Force monitors many factors, including rolling average case rates, to determine the color status for each day.
