Hospital's Greatest Needs

Your contribution helps support the most urgent needs of Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC — the needs that insurance does not cover, but make our hospital a special place of hope and healing for our patients and families. From providing vital funding for medical equipment to educational assistance and support for families adjusting to illness and hospitalization, your contribution is making a difference.

Your donation helps:

  • sustain the 13 playrooms available to patients at Children’s Hospital. These medical-free zones help provide children with a place to escape from talk of their tests and treatments and engage in fun, therapeutic activities. Stocked with toys, games, movies, video games, and art supplies that are purchased solely through donated funds, these special rooms help make the hospital experience less scary and intimidating.

  • fund special events and activities for patients and families. From a Halloween Trick or Treat event to a spring-time Prom or visits from local museums and performers, your gift brings smiles, laughter, and comfort to our children.

  • provide state-of-the-art medical equipment, including our Adventure Series imaging equipment. These themed rooms create a unique journey for every patient that makes the radiology experience more interactive and fun, while decreasing a child’s anxiety and fears.

  • support programs such as pet, music, and art therapy, helping to brighten the day of a child who is recovering from a difficult procedure or surgery, or feeling sad about being in the hospital.

Every child and family within our community deserves compassionate, expert care and your gift helps make this possible at Children’s.
