Ten South Florida children, teens and young adults received free corrective facial and other surgeries during Baptist Children’s Hospital’s Day of Smiles on Saturday, June 15.

Doctors, nurses, technologists, nurse anesthetists and staff members volunteered their time to help correct cleft lips and palates, perform ear reconstruction and scar revisions. This is the 12th year the hospital has donated its facilities and performed free surgeries for children whose families couldn’t afford the operations.

“Baptist Children’s Hospital is committed to providing exceptional, compassionate care for children and families in our community,” said Randall Lee, chief operating officer of Baptist Children’s Hospital. “These surgeries help make such a difference to these children and their families, and we’re very proud to provide this service for them.”
