We thought it would be fun to catch up with Shirley Gross, Development Director for Legacy Salmon Creek to get an update about the CAAT program.
The Salmon Creek Business Group members have supported CAAT at past events, so wanted to share an updated with everyone.
Legacy Health just finished a “mini” campaign to expand the pediatric rehab & development clinic, which also houses the Child Abuse Assessment Team (CAAT). We raised $425,000 in just six months to expand that clinic. This will allow for more pediatric specialists such as pulmonology and mental health to have clinic space which will allow us to see an additional 200 children a week. CAAT started serving children from Cowlitz County this past year too, so as you can imagine, they are very busy and beginning to look at adding another physician.
What a wonderful program that is helping kids in our community. Thanks for sharing Shirley!
