    Brandon Hospital hosts free Back to School Bash with free supplies and more for community
    BRANDON, Fla.  (Aug 2, 2023) -   The HCA Florida Brandon Hospital Women’s and Children’s Services team is thrilled to host the Back to School Bash on Thursday, August 3, 4 pm – 6 pm outside the Children’s Emergency Department entrance at 119 Oakfield Dr, Brandon, Fla. The event is free and open to the public and will include the opportunity to tour a fire truck and ambulance (“Touch-A-Truck”) as well as see a helicopter land on the hospital’s helipad, arts and crafts, a teddy bear clinic, food, music and school supplies while supplies last.
    “Our hospital serves more than 42,000 children each year through our Children’s Emergency Department, five free standing emergency departments: Plant City, Lakeland, Riverview, New Tampa and Temple Terrace, our pediatric inpatient unit, Labor & Delivery unit and Level 3 neonatal intensive care unit (NICU),” said Kelly Lindsay, Chief Operating Officer at Brandon Hospital. “I am so proud of our team for coming together to help children and families. As a mom, I know the cost add up with school supplies. It’s truly a blessing for us to have the opportunity to support our community by helping to ease the financial burden on parents and teachers and help children in our community start the school year on the right foot.”
    The event coincides with the reopening of the Children’s Emergency Department entrance. The entrance was closed during the onset of the COVID pandemic and then continued to remain closed while a fourth tower, the Orange Tower, was built above the Children’s Emergency Department.
