Ft. Lauderdale, FL- June 21, 2018 — As part of their 15-year anniversary, IDS, an innovative cloud technology company specializing in health information management services, is proud to team up with NFL’s Pierre Garçon, wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers, to deliver a fleet of Power Ride On LaFerraris to the children of Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital. Carefully guided by hospital staff and parents, Joe DiMaggio’s kids will be able to ride in style while easing anxiety during their stay. As part of the event, Garçon will be on hand to meet and greet with the kids.
“As a family who has experienced firsthand what it feels like to raise a child who was under specialized care, we understand how families in these situations feel the stress and anxiety of their child,” said Yaniv Dagan CEO and Founder of IDS. “Little things like a ride in an exotic car can make the hospital stay more joyful.”
“Growing up here in South Florida and benefiting from programs that helped nurture kids’ dreams and development, I enjoy being a part of programs that I really believe in,” said Pierre Garçon. “IDS and Joe DiMaggio did something wonderful for these kids today and I am proud to share the experience.”
Known for its dedication to patient- and family-centered care, the hospital showcases an overall “Power of Play” philosophy with each floor displaying themes of Sports, Arts, Games and Dreams. Patients, families and visitors experience a whimsical world in which treatment and healing intertwine with medical expertise and family-centered care to provide an experience like no other in the Florida healthcare landscape.
