$4 million grant boosts University of Michigan campaign for a new children's hospital

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital announced today it will receive a major grant of $4 million from The Carls Foundation, which will advance the hospital's campaign to build a new facility.
