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.
Each year, more than 100,000 children receive care made possible by contributions to the 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 equate to 163 per day. No one is turned away due to an inability to pay.
Gather the whole family for a day of cars, music, drawings and fun! The Southeastern Connecticut Mustang Club is hosting their 8th annual Karz on the Flats car show at Stanton Equipment to benefit Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.
There will be Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, Classics and more! There is sure to be something for everyone!
Events like Karz on the Flats support the vision of Connecticut Children’s to make children in Connecticut the healthiest in the country. The funds raised by Southeastern Connecticut Mustang Club ensure Connecticut Children’s can continue researching, discovering, educating, advocating, and —most importantly — delivering family-centered care to our children and their families.

Registration starts at 10 am.
Judging will take place from 12:30 to 2 pm.
Awards will be presented at 2:30 pm.

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).
