Ranked 13th in the nation for best pediatric cardiology and cardiovascular surgery programs, Advocate Children’s Heart Institute is powered by our team of clinicians and our philanthropic supporters. Together, we are committed to enhancing the physical, emotional and spiritual health of all children and families fighting congenital and acquired heart disease. As medicine continues to evolve, so does the need to evolve our program through meaningful support of capital endeavors, patient care programs, continuing education and social services available to our patients and families.
Children are often overwhelmed by the procedures and emotions that accompany an overnight hospital stay or extended treatment. Charitable gifts support staff time and materials needed for therapeutic activities such as medical play, art lessons, pet therapy, role play, games and distractions.
Advocate Children’s Hospital provides a full range of diagnostic and treatment services for children, from infants through adolescents, for virtually all childhood cancers. Your gift supports a multidisciplinary approach, a focus on family that minimizes the impact on daily life, and advanced and comfortable environments for patient care.
As a not-for-profit hospital, Advocate Children’s Hospital relies on partnerships with friends and neighbors to expand and improve our services.
