What does Stiftung Chance do?
Stiftung Chance complements the services offered by the Children's Hospital Zurich with its various 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.
