Children’s Hospitals Week is March 18-24th. Find out how you can help WVU Medicine Children’s continue to provide pediatric care that goes above and beyond.
What: Children’s Hospitals Week, March 18-24, 2019, hosted by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Local hospitals in the network, including WVU Medicine, participate too.
Why: Insurance and government programs only cover so much. Then there is a gap in funding. With community support, WVU Medicine Children’s is able to offer care above and beyond just the standard of care.
Children’s Hospitals Week raises both funds and awareness. The best part: dollars raised in West Virginia stay local at WVU Medicine Children’s.
3 Ways to Get Involved:
1. Get social.
Learn what makes pediatric hospitals special (and essential). From March 18-24, check in with WVU Medicine Children’s on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, as well as #ChildrensHospitalWeek. Then use those sharing buttons liberally to spread the word.
2. Shop locally with partners of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Many national chains with a West Virginia presence, including IHop, Walmart and Dairy Queen, partner with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. (Find the full list here.) Locally, those dollars go to WVU Medicine Children’s.
3. Give to WVU Medicine Children’s.
WVU Medicine Children’s serves the healthcare needs of hundreds of thousands of children and women in West Virginia and the surrounding region. “Grow Children’s” is a capital campaign to help fund the construction of a new, state-of-the-art children’s hospital and women’s pavilion on the WVU Medicine campus in Morgantown, WV. The campaign will also help expand clinical programs and establish new ones. The demand for pediatric services is growing at such a rapid pace that the creation of a new hospital is a must, according to hospital officials.
