Tebow CURE Hospital Nears Completion


Tebow JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Tebow CURE Hospital in the Philippines is in the final stages of construction. The hospital’s construction began in February 2012, and it is expected to open in the summer of 2014.
The hospital, a 5-story, 30-bed orthopedic surgery facility in Davao City, built in partnership with CURE International, will serve the underprivileged population of the Philippines. It will specialize in pediatric orthopedic surgery treating clubfoot correction, cleft lips, bone infection, congenital limb abnormalities, post-trauma fracture and burn repair. The Tebow CURE Hospital will also house the first international Timmy’s Playroom, expected to be the largest playroom built to date.
“This hospital will deliver life-changing physical healing while sharing the great news of the gospel with kids who could not otherwise afford care,” said Tim Tebow, founder of the Tim Tebow Foundation.
The Tebow CURE Hospital has been funded primarily through individual donors. The hospital is currently $250,000 from completion, which the foundation hopes to raise through its Dollar Day campaign which began Monday, October 21. The campaign aims to utilize the collective power of the Tim Tebow Foundation social media followers, asking them to partner in changing the lives of deserving children by donating just $1 each to the cause.
