About Our Research
Children’s Hospital Foundation is the only non-profit organization in Oklahoma whose sole focus is the advancement of pediatric research and education programs to improve the health of children. Since our inception in 1983, Children’s Hospital Foundation has raised and leveraged matching funds to create more than $121 million for pediatric research and education programs.
Funding for our programs is made possible through the efforts of a dedicated volunteer board, thousands of community volunteers and donors. Through endowments and direct support, we are able to recruit and retain nationally and internationally recognized pediatric physician-scientists to direct research, treat patients and train medical students.
All funds raised in Oklahoma stay in Oklahoma so that families don’t have to leave the state to receive specialized care. We serve children in all 77 counties and no child is ever turned away, regardless of ability to pay.
By making an investment in Children’s Hospital Foundation, you can be sure that you’re putting your money where the miracles are. We’ve been given a four-star rating by a national charity watchdog group, Charity Navigator. Only about 25% of the charities they monitor receive such a favorable rating.
The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center has 314 inpatient beds and is the only freestanding pediatric hospital in Oklahoma solely dedicated to the treatment of children. The pediatric staff blends years of specialized pediatric training with education, research and technology to treat conditions ranging from cardiothoracic and oncology-related illnesses to neonatal specialty care and pediatric solid-organ transplants.
