OUR IMPACT

Why Support Us?

Who we are, what we do and how we do it are all interesting facts but the most important thing to know about Children's Hospital Branches is why we do what we do. ​

For over 100 years, UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland has been delivering exceptional medical care to children from all regions of California. Parents choose Children's Oakland is one of the nation's leading pediatric medical center and the Bay Area's only Level 1 Pediatric Trauma Center. The respected physicians at Children's Oakland see kids in nearly all specialties and treat every child regardless of their family's ability to pay for care.

The Hospital has a policy of "no child will be turned away regardless of their ability to pay". This promise comes at a high financial cost and the budget can only stretch so far even with the generous support of the Benioff family. There are many departments with programs and lifesaving equipment needs that cannot be met out of the Hospital funds and this is where the fundraising efforts of Children's Hospital Branches are able to help.

Phillip's story is just one of the many reasons we work to help UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland.

OUR 2019 FUND RAISING GOALS

Net Proceeds In Excess of

$200,000

When you raise your paddle at our 2019 Shopping Spree, 100% of your gifts will be donated to fund leading-edge, lifesaving Pediatric Cardiology equipment for UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland. Last year, the Cardiology team treated over 7000 patients and performed 75 cardiac operations, nearly 100 catheterizations and more than 8500 echocardiograms (heart ultrasounds) for children of all ages.

 

 

Echocardiography is vital to the team’s ability to quickly diagnose and help treat heart defects both before and after birth. Currently, echocardiography is being performed with two- dimensional (2D) techniques. The requested 3D probe will provide a detailed, real-time understanding of the cardiac anatomy allowing more accurate and precise decision making before, during, and after surgery.
