Gilchrist Kids is committed to providing care for any and all patients who qualify for our care, regardless of the family’s ability to pay. To assist us in our efforts to provide the highest quality care for our pediatric patients, Gilchrist Hospice Care is currently raising philanthropic support to establish a $5 million endowment fund that will be dedicated exclusively to supporting Gilchrist Kids.

Care for our pediatric patients is costly.
We have found that:

  • Our youngest patients require more frequent visits from our dedicated staff and that those visits traditionally last twice as long.
  • Families also need more intensive grief support.
  • Many of our pediatric patients come to us still receiving expensive therapies and medicines that are not covered by insurance.
  • Some of the children we care for will come to us having already exceeded their lifetime maximums for insurance coverage or be without insurance because their parents had to give up their jobs to care for them.

Gilchrist Kids also provides emotional and social support for parents-to-be who have been told that their unborn child has a life-limiting disease. Care for these "perinatal" patients is not covered by insurance.

If you are interested in supporting Gilchrist Kids, please visit our special giving opportunities donation page or email Lori Mulligan, Senior Director of Development or call at 443-849-8214.
