Cook Children's

Our Promise: Knowing that every child's life is sacred, it is the promise of Cook Children's to improve the health of every child in our region through the prevention and treatment of illness, disease and injury.
No day at Cook Children's is the same. The needs of our patients, new research, emerging technology and growing programs all mean one thing: We are constantly changing. The Children's Fund within Cook Children's Health Foundation gives us the flexibility to meet and fund these changing needs. Gifts made to this fund are unrestricted, which means they're not designated by the donor to go toward a specific area or program. Some of the most valuable gifts we receive are those that are unrestricted and can be applied to the areas where the need is greatest. The Children's Fund also allows us to provide our patients with much-needed services, without having to bill for them. Child Life, Pastoral Care and Case Management are all examples of non-billable services that receive support from our Children's Fund. Thanks to the Children's Fund, Child Life specialists can help patients understand what to expect with upcoming procedures, case workers can assist patient families with lodging, transportation and meal cards, and chaplains can visit with families in times of trial or grief. And the families touched by those services will never have to see a bill for them. Your generosity allows Cook Children's to fulfill our Promise to patient families.
