Established in 1994, Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital Foundation provides philanthropic support to Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital and ensures the ongoing availability of safe, quality, cost-effective, patient- and family-centered care, regardless of one's ability to pay, with the goal of improving the health of the community it serves. In FY2011, our healthcare programs and services reached over 117,000 children ages 0-18.
As South Florida’s newest freestanding children’s hospital, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital combines advanced technology with the expertise of the largest diversity of board-certified pediatric specialists in the region. This patient- and family-centered facility has earned the distinction of being the leading children’s hospital in Broward and Palm Beach counties through a wide scope of pediatric critical services, including the Wasie Neonatal Level II and Level III Intensive Care Unit and the only pediatric Level I trauma center in south Broward County. The county’s only pediatric heart transplant program and first inpatient rehabilitation program are joined by the largest group of pediatric orthopedic surgeons in South Florida and emergency departments in three locations.
Dedicated to supporting healthcare for the children served by Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital, the Foundation is the central agency through which charitiable contributions are made. A volunteer Board of Directors, comprised of prominent business and community leaders and physicians, oversees all aspects of the Foundation's operations.
Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital Foundation accepts gifts of cash, checks, securities, real estate (limited), tangible personal property (limited), charitable gift annuities, life insurance (limited), charitable remainder trusts and charitable lead trusts.
