Giving Children the Gift of Health

With a gift to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), you can help change our children’s health care future.

In May 2016, Baptist launched a campaign to construct a new pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) at the Spence and Becky Wilson Baptist Children’s Hospital. The 12-bed unit will build upon Baptist’s commitment to enhance health care access for children and families. Slated to open by December 2016, the new PICU will accomplish several goals in our community.

Meet growth needs.
The Emergency Department treats more than double the number of children than expected when it opened in 2015.
Complete the existing continuum of care.
Hundreds of children require further intensive care, necessitating their transfer to another facility, disrupting care and causing additional stress for families.
Provide highly-specialized care
Pediatric care requires specialization to care for all sizes, leading to higher costs for equipment and care.
Create private rooms where parents can remain with children in the PICU.

With two pediatric intensivists and teams of pediatric nurses and specialists, Baptist’s PICU offers families hope and support when they need it most.

We invite you to become part of health care history---and leave your own legacy within our walls. Give your gift in honor of a special child in your life. All those named during the campaign will become part of a permanent, public commemoration in the PICU.

To give, please fill out the pledge form that was distributed by your managers. If you have questions please call the Foundation at 901-227-7125.
