The 21st Annual TGH Foundation Gala, “Alice in Wonderland: Mad about TGH!” highlights some of our youngest patients at Tampa General Hospital (TGH) – the kids receiving treatment in our Children’s Medical Center.
At the TGH Children's Medical Center (CMC), we take pride in our position as the primary teaching hospital for the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine to ensure a medical staff of pediatric physicians with specialties and subspecialties including oncology, kidney transplant, rehabilitation, trauma, endocrinology and more.
The Children’s Medical Center offers a level of care only a few hospitals in the state can. Our center is one of three pediatric dialysis units in the state, has a nine-bed pediatric intensive care unit (PICU), is one of three burn centers in Florida and the first in the state to earn verification from the American Burn Association/American College of Surgeons.
The TGH Foundation welcomes your support of a 100% tax-deductible donation to the TGH Children’s Medical Center. Here’s how your donation can make a difference to our patients:
- $25 can supply a toy to a child who is celebrating his/her birthday in the hospital. Pediatric patients are also often rewarded with a toy after a tough procedure, a hardworking therapy session or for a holiday spent at the CMC. The toys frequently go home with the patients.
- $50 can supply a day of arts and crafts for pediatric patients and their families to enjoy in the Lightning Child Life Playroom which gives kids a stress-free place to play and socialize with other children. No medical procedures are permitted in the playroom!
- $100 can supply food and supplies for the Parent Lounge located in the CMC. The Parent Lounge gives families a place to relax, eat a meal, make a phone call or do some laundry.
- $250 can supply special dolls that our Child Life Specialists use to teach patients about the procedures they will experience.
- $500 can supply virtual reality goggles and tablets to help with distraction while pediatric patients are going through sometimes painful treatments.
