Donors & Supporters
When you make a gift to Blythedale, you are helping miracles unfold...
An enthusiastic four-year-old high-fives her pediatrician as she recuperates from complicated kidney transplant surgery... With the encouragement of his physical therapist, a 17-year-old lacrosse star takes his first independent steps following surgery to remove a brain tumor... And a "micro-preemie”, born at just 22 weeks gestation, takes her first independent breath following months of dependence on mechanical ventilation.
We are inspired by all of our patients, and every day become more devoted to providing them with every opportunity to dream, aspire and achieve. Philanthropy is key to offering children the broad range of services to address their medical and rehabilitative needs, and transform their dreams to reality.
Phase II of our Capital Campaign is in full swing. In November 2012, we celebrated the opening of The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Center for Speech & Audiology, surrounded by donors, patient families and staff. The remainder of Phase II will advance our vision for a new Blythedale through a renovation of the existing building to accommodate an expanded Day Hospital and Early Childhood Center, slated to open later this year.
In our current healthcare economic climate, the reality is that reimbursements alone cannot cover the full cost of care for a child with extensive and complex medical needs. Blythedale treats patients regardless of financial ability and a staggering 70 percent of our patients are Medicaid-dependent. The generosity of our friends and community fills the critical gap and allows Blythedale to grow and develop an ever-broadening scope of services. In order to continue to bring our vision to reality, we need your support.
Join us as we help future generations of children to embark on their own journeys to claim their futures.
