Operation Pumpkin benefits Children’s Hospital

The Shops at Canal Place kicked off Operation Pumpkin festivities at Children’s Hospital, giving patients an opportunity to decorate their own pumpkins, create arts and crafts, and listen to festive tunes.

The 247-bed, nonprofit medical center on Henry Clay Avenue offers advanced pediatric care for children from birth to 21 years. With more than 40 specialties and nearly 400 physicians, it is the only full-service hospital exclusively for children in Louisiana and the Gulf South.
