Family Support

  • Mini Operating Room 2

    Children can use this equipment, such as the patient puppets pictured, to perform pretend surgeries on their dolls or stuffed animals. This type of play helps children better understand their surgery which leads to less anxiety and faster recoveries. Your gift here will help buy about 10 operating room pieces to be used throughout Children's Hospital and Children's Hospital Outpatient Center.
  • Palliative Care Camp Scholarships

    Your gift allows children to experience camp, group living, and outdoor activities at no cost. It also allows children to interact with others who have similar problems and illnesses. This is a great place for children to learn to cope with their disease and build self-esteem. Socialization, games, archery, tennis, swimming, fishing, etc., are all activities included in the camp experience.

    Whether you are able to give $25 (1 share) to support a scholarship or $550 (11 shares) for a whole scholarship, your gift will provide an invaluable experience for a child.

    This provides support for parents who have children with chronic illness, trauma, unexpected hospitalization, etc. Refreshments and comforting items such as helpful resource guides and staff support are included.
  • Playroom Upgrades

    Our playrooms are a very important space for our children and families. Many children may spend several days and even weeks in our care. The playrooms provide a place a way from their rooms and provide stimulating activities and games!
  • Privacy Screen

    Privacy screens support Family Centered Care and Developmental Care for critically ill infants. They provide privacy for visiting parents, kangaroo care, breast feeding and more in large, open ICU settings. Two or more screens can be used to create a temporary “room” where needed. They are sized to fit around a chair for a parent holding a baby or radiant warmer/incubator (specific types of ICU infant bed). They were designed by NICU nurses to take the punishment given furniture in a hospital environment and continue to look good for years. You can show your support by buying a share for $100.
