SAFETY STORE OPENS AT RADY CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL



Rady Children's Hospital recently opened a Safety Store that carries supplies to reduce the risk of injuries. This store was opened with the help of UnitedHealthcare. It partnered with Rady’s and gave a $10,000 grant to keep kids safe. 

The store’s goal is to keep children safe whether they're playing at home or participating in outdoor activities. At the new store, families can purchase sports products such as helmets, knee pads, and safety glasses as well as general household safety products. The store is conveniently located in the lobby of Rady Children’s Health Services building at 3665 Kearny Villa Road. For more information about the new store and its products, visit www.rchsd.org.
