Children’s Hospital & Medical Center’s mission is to improve the lives of children—and no pandemic changes that. Founded in the midst of the polio epidemic, Children’s has been serving children of the region and beyond for more than 70 years.
COVID-19 has not impacted our strong commitment to children and families. However, it has created enormous challenges in our ability to fund important mission-critical services. We remain ever faithful to our founding principal that no child be turned away for an inability to pay.
Thanks to donor support, Children’s has lived up to the challenge since 1948. But to continue to fulfill our promise to our community and region, we need your help. Please join us in the fight for the health of our region’s children.
