Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital is entering its third year of partnership with Buckle Up for Life. Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital treats more than 250,000 children each year in a 255-bed hospital and regional clinics that feature state-of-the-art technology and family-friendly resources. Nationally recognized, Le Bonheur is ranked by U.S. News & World Report as a Best Children’s Hospital.
“The data for survival rates on those who are restrained with seatbelts verses those who are not is proof that seat belts save lives,” says Susan Helms, director of Injury Prevention and Safe Kids Mid-South at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. “We are so pleased to be joining forces with Buckle up for Life and Toyota because we believe that convening families, community organizations and local safety experts will have a powerful effect on improving children’s safety. We are excited about taking this awareness and its results even farther.”
