About Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego

Rady Children's Hospital has had a profound impact on our community since we opened our doors to treat 13 polio patients in 1954. Today Rady Children's provides a full spectrum of care to nearly 280,000 children every year and is the region's only designated pediatric trauma center.

The Hospital's commitment to medical excellence is demonstrated through its state-of-the-art equipment, comprehensive programs and services and superior medical team. We not only treat children when they are sick, we seek out ways to help keep them well.

Rady Children's is extraordinary in other ways, too. It is a place where stars twinkle at night indoors; where mimes, musicians and storytellers comfort patients; and where sick children smile when you think they wouldn't or couldn't. At Rady Children's, children always come first.

As a non-profit hospital, Rady Children's depends on its community to help fund critically needed care and services. When you participate in the Celebration of Champions®, you help children whom you may never meet but whose lives have been saved through your investment.

Truly, every dollar matters. Please help us by making an investment in the health of our community's children.
