Dear Friends,

In 1983, Phoenix Children’s Hospital officially began serving the children and families of our community. Today we are one of the ten largest children’s hospitals in the country. More importantly, we are among the most respected, with many of our clinical programs ranked as the best in the nation by U.S. News and World Report.

steve-schnallWe have transformed from a clinically-based children’s hospital to a pediatric medical center with a laser-like focus on building research infrastructure, recruiting leading physician-scientists, and forging important research collaborations with partners of note from across the country. In 2012, we launched the Ronald A. Matricaria Institute of Molecular Medicine, with the ultimate goal of finding improved treatments for children with cancer, and someday even cures for a host of devastating childhood illnesses.

Phoenix Children’s Hospital is Arizona’s only children’s hospital recognized by U.S. News & World Report’s Best Children’s Hospitals with rankings in all ten specialties. Phoenix Children’s provides world-class inpatient, outpatient, trauma, emergency and urgent care to children and families in Arizona and throughout the Southwest. As one of the largest children’s hospitals in the country, Phoenix Children’s provides care across more than 75 pediatric specialties. The Hospital is poised for continued growth in quality patient care, research and medical education. For more information about the hospital, visit http://www.phoenixchildrens.org.

As an institution we are proud of where we are today, and what is yet to come. But it’s people who have made it possible. For every program and service we’re able to offer, amid every achievement and success, there are committed donors, business and community leaders, volunteers and advocates working behind the scenes to make it happen. They have brought us to where we are today, and will help carry us forward.

The Foundation offers numerous ways for you to give, get involved, and become an invaluable friend and partner of Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Every dollar donated, and every hour invested, directly impacts the lives of our patients and families. Please join us today, and make a difference in a child’s tomorrow.

Sincerely,

steve-schnall-sig
