Patient ambassadors recently helped give the Carell family a sneak peek at the first new floor of the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt expansion, scheduled to open at the end of June. The four-floor addition was made possible by support from the Carell family and many other donors in the community through the Growing to New Heights campaign. Pictured here, from left, are patients Kael Adams, Caroline Lantz and Grace Hamilton with Julie Carell Stadler, Edie Carell Johnson and Kathryn Carell Brown.
