OCH Healing Hands

Welcome to our Team!

Our Children's House (OCH) at Children's Health is a specialty hospital that houses three different populations: feeding, rehab and pulmonary.  As a rehab and teaching hospital, the length of stay for most patients is at least 2 weeks.  This provides the opportunity for the hospital staff to get to know their patient's and families well, sharing in the joys and struggles of their journey.

OCH Healing Hands was formed to better help the families we serve.  Many of our patients require supplies and equipment prior to discharge home that are critical to their well-being.  These supplies necessary for their care are often expensive and some families do not have the means to cover these costs. 

Therefore, OCH Healing Hands is raising money to help assist those families in need.  Whether it is a blender for a child that can only eat pureed table food, a car seat for a child discharging home, or medical equipment, we strive to fill the gap.  100% of the money raised will go to supporting the patients and families in need!

What is Passion for Children's?

Passion for Children's is a grassroots fundraising campaign, designed for people of all ages, for the exclusive benefit of Children's Health. We encourage participants to pledge to raise a minimum of $100 annually, and choose a specific program, service, clinic and/or research center to benefit from their fundraising.

Everyone may not have the same cause, but Passion for Children's unites fundraisers through hope, courage, vision and determination to make a difference in the lives of children treated at Children's Health.
