NICU Neonatal Intensive Care

The tiniest of patients and their families arrive in the NICU with little to no time for preparation and the time that follows is a roller coaster ride of frequent ups and downs. Items on the NICU Wish List provide needed supplies for new moms and some toys that allow parents and caregivers to engage in developmental play.

PICU Pediatric Intensive Care

Often patients arrive at the PICU after a trip to the emergency department. That trip frequently leaves not just the child, but also the parent with ruined clothing that cannot be worn. Parents whose children are patients in Intensive Care are frequently too frightened to leave their child's bedside for even the most basic functions. Please help provide clothing to replace their destroyed clothes and some of their basic needs.

Spiritual Care and Bereavement

They can be overwhelmed and at a loss for how to move forward. At Nationwide Children's, we take a holistic approach to accompanying families at the time of death and beyond. Your gifts from the Wish List enable us to help preserve memories, building legacies and assisting with ongoing bereavement support on a path toward healing.
