Love for children and concern for their health and future brought philanthropists, state leaders and medical professionals together Friday to break ground on a new $180 million pediatric tower adjacent to Batson Children’s Hospital. “We’re just very thankful to this place,” said Megan Bell of Pearl, mother of 8-year-old patient Avery Bell. “Sometimes people ask what Batson means to me. It means life to me. I know that if it weren’t for this place … I wouldn’t have her.”
