Charity Spotlight – The Hospital for Sick Children

 

The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) is Canada’s most research-intensive hospital and the largest centre dedicated to improving children’s health in the country. As innovators in child health, SickKids partners locally and globally to improve the health of children by integrating care, research and education.

With a staff that includes professionals from all disciplines of health care and research, SickKids provides the best in complex and specialized care by creating scientific and clinical advancements, sharing knowledge and expertise and championing the development of an accessible, comprehensive and sustainable child health system.

The vision is simple: Healthier Children. A Better World.TM

SickKids believes fighting for the health and wellbeing of children is one of the most powerful ways to improve society, and we agree.

PearTree has been involved in SickKids since our beginning, through facilitating donations and sponsorship of events, most recently SickKids Bubble Hockey.

As beautifully said by PearTree clients and donors to SickKids, Mary Mogford and Tom Campbell, “We have both had the privilege and the honour to be part of the SickKids family for over 30 years.  Every day at SickKids was an inspiration for us.  It was long a hope and dream for us to be able to help support the work of the superb SickKids team in a meaningful way.  Working with PearTree Financial helped us to realize that dream when we set up the Mogford Campbell Family Chair in Paediatric Clinical Neuroscience.”

Right now, quantum advancements in scientific knowledge and technology present an unprecedented opportunity for the hospital.

Supporting these three pillars will ready SickKids for the next round in the fight for children’s health: updated infrastructure – to unleash the full potential of SickKids experts; partnering for better care – to extend SickKids excellent standards of care to more children in Ontario, and around the world; and ground-breaking research – the best weapon in the fight against disease and congenital childhood conditions.
