Valley Children's Hospital has a brand-new facility for patients and their families to use. A dedication ceremony was held on Monday for the Manuel and Katye Mancebo Emergency Department Waiting Room.

The hospital chose to name the new facility after the former owners of the Kings County Truck Lines because of their generous giving over the years. The Mancebos have a planned giving commitment valued at more than $1 million to the hospital.

Katye Mancebo passed away last November. Her husband, Manuel, says Valley Children's was his late wife's favorite charity, and including the hospital in their estate plan was her idea. He said, "My wife, Katye, you know she gave a lot of money over the years to the hospital. A lot of it I didn't know about, but that's the type of woman that she was."

Over the years, the Mancebos have donated more than $360,000.
