für das kritisch kranke Kind
at Kinderspital Zürich
Who does Stiftung Chance support?
Stiftung Chance complements the Children's Hospital Zurich with various additional services. We focus on the intensive care units and neonatology. There we support critically ill children, their families and the medical and nursing teams.
Why is this necessary?
The University Children's Hospital Zurich, itself a foundation, is one of the leading institutions for paediatric and adolescent medicine in Switzerland. Stiftung Chance enables additional services at the Children's Hospital Zurich that are not covered by the public purse. Stiftung Chance was founded in 1999 by parents of critically ill children and is financed solely by donations.
We support critically ill children
With your help, Stiftung Chance supports the Children's Hospital Zurich. On behalf of the critically ill children and their families, we thank you for your generosity.
We are currently seeking donations for: Care Counselling
Currently, an exceptionally large number of critically ill infants with viral respiratory infections (often RSV) are hospitalised. The medical and nursing teams are at their limits. This situation is exacerbated by the already existing shortage of staff.
Right now care counselling offers important support. It steps in and becomes the link between medicine, care and parents. Our care counsellors connect with the families in their stressful situation, integrate them into the processes where possible and support the medical teams in their work.
The Stiftung Chance für das kritisch kranke Kind has been active at the Zurich Children's Hospital since 1999. We have experienced and achieved a lot in this time. Read more (only in German).
The Board of Trustees of the Stiftung Chance für das kritisch kranke Kind is made up of medical and nursing specialists at the Children's Hospital Zurich and members who are anchored in professional and family life.
