At 36 years old, a young children’s hospital in comparison to many, Phoenix Children’s Hospital has a profound appreciation for those partners who have been with them since the beginning. Walmart and Sam’s Club are a great example of just that, with a Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) partnership dating back 32 years.

On Tuesday, this 32-year and nearly $14 million contribution was recognized with a naming in the Phoenix Children’s General Pediatrics clinic. Walmart associates, Phoenix area Market Manager Peter Abbott and Phoenix Children’s leadership including President & CEO Bob Meyer and Foundation Vice President of Corporate Development & Special Events Tim Harrison, were there to commemorate the occasion.

Walmart and Sam’s Club are very dedicated and engaged partners, always creating new ways to fundraise for the sick and injured kids in their community and forging friendships with our staff and patient families. It is not uncommon to see Phoenix Children’s patient families at a store or a Club during their annual four-week fundraising campaign, so of course there were plenty of them present at the unveiling to celebrate as well.

“Walmart and Sam’s Club’s ongoing support for Phoenix Children’s Hospital is truly astonishing,” said Steven Schnall, Senior Vice President and Chief Development Officer at Phoenix Children’s. “Recognizing their efforts by renaming the General Pediatrics Clinic is incredibly well-deserved for a company that does so much for our patients and our community.”


Thank you to the many Walmart and Sam’s Club associates, customers, members and vendors for their passion and commitment to our kids.
