Carrollton, TX – Boston Children’s Hospital partners with Cloverkey: Cloverkey announces it has been awarded the opportunity to operate the Boston Children’s Hospital gift shop. The gift shop is expected to open by the end of April and installation of the new shop will begin April 19, 2021.
“We are so proud to have been selected by Boston Children’s Hospital as their gift shop partner. They have been named the country’s #1 pediatric hospital by U.S. News & World Report for seven years straight. We feel there is no better match for their gift shop than Cloverkey. Our team’s 40+ years of experience operating hospital gift shops along with our commitment to supporting our hospital partners’ missions makes Cloverkey the right choice for a world class hospital,” said Gwynne Gillette, COO of Cloverkey.
The Boston Children’s Hospital gift shop falls under the responsibility of the Patient Experience team and will be a part of the full continuum of patient and family support. As such, the gift shop will ultimately support the entire Boston Children’s network with offsite sales through pop-up kiosks on remote campuses and a robust online shopping option with in-room patient delivery on campus in addition to its physical location in the main hospital.
“We began the partnership with a survey among members of the Boston Children’s Patient & Family Advisory Council,” Ms. Gillette said. “This ensures we have taken into consideration the needs, wants, and desires of our primary constituents on campus as we craft the new gift shop.”
Based on these survey results, Boston Children’s logo merchandise will figure prominently in the assortment as will expanded convenience and personal care departments. “And, of course, gifts appealing to children of all ages – infant to teenager – have been a focus of our buying team,” said Lori Cohen, Sr. Vice President, Purchasing. “We will be featuring hundreds of new items brought in specifically to support the Boston Children’s gift shop.”
Cloverkey President, Justin Cohen, said, “Our entire team is focused on this prestigious location and to ensuring the new Boston Children’s Hospital gift shop meets and exceeds the expectations of our new partner. We could not be more honored to have been selected to serve the patients, visitors and employees of Boston Children’s.”
