Caring For The Future

When children arrive at the hospital for a procedure, they are often nervous and scared. Thanks to our well-equipped pediatric department and kind and caring staff, they don’t stay scared long.

Donor support helps our youngest patients and their family members understand and cope with their hospital experience. They are comforted by beautiful imaginative murals that line the hallways as well as a room of toys, books, and videos to provide a welcome distraction.

“Thank you for everything you do for the Pediatric Unit. Every day I see how your gifts help the children and families who come to this unit. You bring wonder, joy, and healing to our young patients.”
