We know that being tested for COVID-19 is key in preventing its spread and for treatment, especially in those with immune compromised, pre-existing conditions. Hyundai is focused on helping children get the testing they may need, safely.

Hyundai and its Hope On Wheels program, is giving $200,000 grants each to 11 childrenís hospitals around the U.S. for COVID-19 Drive-Thru Testing Centers. The grants total $2.2 million.

Hyundai says the COVID-19 pandemic has created a particular threat to children with cancer, many who have compromised immune systems. The company says the drive-thru testing centers provide a safe and efficient way for children who present risk factors to get the care they need.

The hospitals receiving Hyundai COVID-19 Drive-Thru Testing grants are:

  • The Hyundai Cancer Institute at CHOC Children's, Orange, CA
  • UH Rainbow Babies and Children's, Cleveland, OH
  • Children's National Hospital, Washington, D.C.
  • Dana Farber/ Boston Children's Hospital, Boston, MA
  • Seattle Children's Hospital, Seattle, WA
  • Columbia Medical Center, New York, NY
  • St. Joseph's Children's Hospital, Tampa, FL
  • Children's Hospital of Colorado, Aurora, CO
  • Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA
  • Texas Children's Hospital, Houston, TX
  • University of Alabama Children's, Birmingham, AL

"The Hyundai COVID-19 Drive-thru testing grants are designed to get urgent financial support to institutions on the front-line in the fight against the coronavirus," says Jose Munoz, President and CEO, Hyundai Motor North America. "Children who are diagnosed with cancer are particularly at higher risk. That's why it was important to us to join forces with several children's hospitals around the nation to company this threat to the health and well-being of children. We are pleased to expand to 11 institutions nationwide, each with a $200,000 grant."
