Success Stories

Two years ago, Mitchel Cooper's future didn't look so bright. When a tragic accident left him pinned under a tree, Penn State Children's Hospital was the obvious choice for his emergency care.

As the region's only pediatric trauma center, Penn State Children's Hospital offered the advanced care needed to see Mitchel through his accident, and the more than sixty surgeries needed to get him back on his feet.

Today, Mitchel's future is looking great!
