At Connecticut Children’s Medical Center Foundation, our mission is to support the Medical Center. By bringing together patient families, donors, community members, philanthropic partners and others to raise the financial resources needed to invest in people, research, technology and state-of-the-art equipment, we can support Connecticut Children’s in providing the care our children need and deserve.
Patient care visits made possible by contributions to the Connecticut Children's Annual Giving Fund, which touches every corner of the Medical Center.
Patients in need of critical-care were transported to Connecticut Children's from regional hospitals. Of that, more than 300 were NICU babies.
Patient visits to the emergency department which equates to more than 152 per day. No one is turned away due to an inability to pay.

My second pregnancy was a smooth, healthy one with no red flags on any of my routine ultrasounds. Rylan was born in Waterbury on Monday, October 6, 2015 weighing 9lbs 1oz. There were no red flags at the time of Rylan’s birth. It was not until 24 hours later, when he was ready to be discharged, that everything changed. Rylan went for two routine tests. A hearing test and a fairly new test for newborns- the pulse ox test (non-invasive test measures blood oxygen in the body).
