The Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital has been providing pediatric care since 1921, with more than 80 pediatric physicians recognized among the “Best Doctors in America” and they have been consistently ranked the “Best Children’s Hospital” by US News and World Report.  Their expertise in pediatric cardiovascular intervention and surgical programs, including the ECMO heart-lung bypass, and the Congenital Heart program with 4 CT surgeons and 15 board certified cardiologists, provide world class care.  Other pediatric care includes transplants, cancer, dialysis, digestive disorders, child neurology and epilepsy, and behavior health.

It’s not too late to get involved to support the children at the Children’s for Christmas and there are three ways you can get involved.

  1. A monetary gift to the Children’s Hospital may be a one-time or sustaining gift designated in an area of greatest need or you can select among 8 focus programs.  Gifts can also be made as matching with your employer.
  2.
