#6: The Day He Said "We Can Do Better"
In the mid-1980s, when Arnold and Winnie Palmer visited the neonatal intensive care unit and pediatrics wing of Orlando Regional Medical Center, they were impressed by the talent and dedication of the staff, but they were bothered by the modest facilities.
“We can do better than this,” Arnold said. “We should do better than this, for the children of our community.”
That statement led to what is today the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, the fourth-largest neonatal intensive care unit in the country, and Central Florida's only pediatric Level One Trauma Center. With the Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies, it's just part of the Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation’s commitment to improving children’s health—and an inspiration to us all to “do better” whenever an opportunity presents itself.
