who you help

CHEO is a global leader in child health dedicated to helping children and youth live their best lives. We combine excellence in clinical care, research and education with a commitment to working with partners to advance an evolution of seamless care that's provided where, when and how it's needed.

When a patient comes to the Emergency Department or has to be admitted to CHEO's Mental Health Unit staff members need to ensure each patient has access to the care that will be most beneficial, regardless of their age or the reason for their admission. It's essential that CHEO be properly equipped to support patients. That's where donor support comes in.

Donor support helps CHEO experts to:
  • See more kids and see them more quickly.
  • Help parents and caregivers find the right services at the right time.
  • Improve emergency care.
  • Make services more available in communities outside of CHEO's immediate region through the use of telemedicine and virtual consultations.
  • Expand mental health services for children under six.
