    Areas of interest

    When you invest in Children's Hospital, where exactly does your money go? When deciding how best to serve our kids, we surveyed the community to help us identify our priorities for investment. Our survey results helped us focus on two key initiatives:

    Excellence in care

    Our nation-leading programs in cancer and blood disorder care, genomics, neurosciences, newborn and fetal care and the Herma Heart Center.

    Community-based health

    Initiatives to care for children outside of our hospital providing neighborhood medical care, immunization awareness, child and family counseling, foster care and advocacy.

    Some of our supporters request that their gift go to a specific program, service or fund established in a child's name.
