A Legacy of Expert, Compassionate Care for Children
HSS was founded on a commitment to helping children lead happier, healthier lives. In 2012, the Hospital opened the Lerner Children’s Pavilion, a state-of-the-art “hospital within a hospital” that has become the go-to center for families seeking the world’s top pediatric specialists. To meet the growing demand for our services, HSS seeks to build a $30 million endowment, with the purpose of providing the highest quality care to all children regardless of circumstances and to advance the clinical care, research, and education mission of pediatrics at the Hospital.
We are calling on the philanthropic support of friends like you to help us achieve our goal.
Caring for Every Child Who Needs Us
Providing clinical care for children and their families is costly, and health care reimbursements are particularly low for complicated pediatric orthopedic issues that often require special treatment and ongoing care. The Lerner Children’s Pavilion endowment will help ensure that the Hospital can continue to provide care at the highest level to every child who needs our expertise.
A Warm and Supportive Environment
The Child Life Program at the Lerner Children’s Pavilion provides psychological and emotional support to our youngest patients and their families, offering a variety of programs including movie nights, art workshops, holiday parties, interactive activities, and much more. Funds from the endowment will ensure this program—proven vital to patient experience and recovery—has the staff and resources to continue to grow.
From the researchers investigating the causes of disease to the clinician-scientists who bridge laboratory knowledge with hands-on patient care, the research team at HSS translates discoveries and innovations into effective treatments and cures that will improve the quality of life—and create a brighter future—for countless children. The endowment provides essential support for ongoing research that transforms the way we diagnose, treat, and care for our young patients.
