Thank you for your support of Blythedale Children's Hospital!

Philanthropy from private foundations and corporations are vital to  Blythedale’s abilty to provide much-needed services to our patients and their families.  Partnerships between Blythedale and private/corporate foundations are a true win-win situation:  grant funding supports programs that ensure all children receive the treatment and clinical service enhancements that maximize their chances for positive long-term outcomes, while our philanthropic partners also achieve their goals of helping Blythedale patients as well as the broader community. 
Blythedale welcomes support from private and corporate foundations for all of our essential services – including, but not limited to, our Social Work and Child Life programs, our Early Childhood Center, post-discharge Care Management, and more.  Blythedale also collaborates with the Burke Medical Research Institute to conduct research on improved treatment for children with neurological impairments at Blythedale Children’s Hospital.  
Foundation support helps Blythedale to strengthen needy families whose children are our patients, providing targeted assistance and advocacy that prepare them for the many challenges ahead.  Foundation and corporate support also contributes to meeting Blythedale’s needs for capital improvements, equipment, and endowment that by extension will allow us to meet the needs of medically complex children in the decades to come. 
For further information, please contact Grant Writer Janine Annett.

A way to say, "thank you."

At Blythedale Children’s Hospital we are fortunate to have a caring staff of more than 250 individuals who work with our patients and their families every day. We are often asked by our families, "How can I express my gratitude to the employees who have made a difference for my child while being treated at Blythedale?”

One way to express your gratitude is to honor and recognize the caregivers who have made a difference for your child through our Grateful Family Program. This program allows grateful families and friends the opportunity to support patient services and programs at Blythedale Children’s Hospital, while recognizing the exemplary care received from a staff member at Blythedale.
Perhaps the caregiver was:

  • An outstanding physician 
  • An extraordinary nurse 
  • A supportive therapist 
  • A caring volunteer 
  • An attentive food service aid 
  • A cheerful housekeeper 
  • A helpful social worker

Words of gratitude from some of our families...
 "Only those at Blythedale who lived minute to minute with us, who took this child who literally couldn’t do anything and made her whole, who started as strangers and became a life-long part of our extended family, truly know how grateful we are to have our daughter back."
"Our therapist cared for our son like he was her own child. Her dedication and compassion were unparalleled.”
"Simply put, my medical team gave me back my life.”

Hearing the words "thank you" is priceless to your physician, nurses, therapists and other healthcare professionals. We hope you take this opportunity to share your story about the Blythedale caregiver who meant so much to you and your child!
