El Paso Children's Foundation
A higher level of care for El Paso's children.
Today the number of pediatric specialists in El Paso has almost quadrupled thanks to El Paso Children's. Where there was only one pediatric surgeon, there are three. Where there were no pediatric anesthesiologists, there are four. Where there was only one pediatric endocrinologist, there are an unbelievable five. Where there was only one board certified pediatric hematologist/oncologist, today there are five and a certified Children's Oncology Group (one of only 190 in the nation) that provides the latest research and protocols, the very same as those found at St. Jude for our children right here at home.
Already, one in ten El Paso children have benefitted by the expert care provided by the physicians and staff at El Paso Children's Hospital who do what they do because...they love caring for kids.
It only takes a walk down the hall at Children's to feel the difference. From the Enchanted Forest, to the Family Resource Center, to the therapeutic art program, to the Child Life Specialist patiently answering questions, to the Milagro Bead program, to the array of medical equipment in sizes to serve neonates to teens, this is a Children's Hospital that says, "We care for kids."
El Paso Children's Foundation is dedicated to providing support for the tools, the resources, the equipment and the care that makes El Paso Children's Hospital a special place.
Every penny raised stays right here at home.
There is a question in the back of every donor's mind with every check written, with every dollar donated. Will my donation really make a difference? Am I really having an impact?
Here's how we make a difference.
Every penny donated to El Paso Children's Foundation stays right here at home.
- El Paso Children's specialty services have already impacted one out of every ten El Paso children.
- One out of every four El Paso families live below the Federal Poverty level. Some of those kids wouldn't get specialty care if if weren't for El Paso Children's.
- Over 3500 cancer kids are receiving the latest protocols through El Paso Children's oncology unit.
- Since 2009, through the support of generous donors from every walk of life, El Paso Children's Foundation has raised almost $10 million dollars through over 80,000 donations large and small from events, grants, major gifts, pledges, and merchant balloon campaigns to provide medical equipment, training, a therapeutic art program, public education about child abuse, diabetes, drowning prevention, asthma, and family care grants.
Every sick kid deserves the best care possible.
With your help, they will receive it.
