PORT ST. LUCIE - The Martin Health Foundation has been awarded a $100,000 grant from the PNC Foundation to help build Tradition Medical Center in west Port St. Lucie.

Tradition Medical Center, a 90-bed hospital scheduled to open in January 2014, will feature 14 childbirth suites and a level II neonatal intensive care unit. The hospital will include a full-service emergency department, general and vascular surgery, oncology services and more.

In recognition of the gift, Martin Health has named a section of the Tradition Medical Center maternal-child department the PNC Well-Baby Nursery.

"We are extremely grateful to PNC for its generosity and for helping provide much-needed access to care," said Mark E. Robitaille, president and CEO of Martin Health System.

"Martin Health has a long history of collaborating with the community to ensure exceptional care is available, and this is an example of how those partnerships can benefit local residents."

The PNC Foundation receives its principal funding from the PNC Financial Services Group. Its grant to help fund the maternal-child department complements its support of young children through PNC Grow Up Great, a $350 million, multi-year initiative that began in 2004 to help prepare children from birth to age 5 for success in school and life.

Martin Health System is a nonprofit, community-based health care organization that has served the region for more than 70 years.
