The hospital announced Friday that it has named its pediatric surgery center after the country superstars.

The Rascal Flats Surgery Center will include new specialized radiology suites to improve treatment. More than 12,700 children undergo surgery at the hospitable each year.

The band, which includes Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney, have performed for patients and donated more than $3 million to the hospital during the past five years.

They performed Friday after the announcement and handed out candy during trick-or-treat room visits.

Their performance started a busy run for the group. They are up for a Country Music Association Award on Nov. 10 and their next album, "Nothing Like This" is out Nov. 16.
