The David Ortiz Children’s Fund will continue to support Heartcare Dominicana while finding other areas that will improve the critical care for Domincan children. Something we are exploring is to build capacity at Robert Reid Cabral Children’s Hospital. This is of high interest for David because his mother was a nurse there and it is the main children’s hospital for the country’s poor children.

We are excited to support the Northeast region through our partnership with Massachusetts General Hospital. This is the first partnership in the area and we are proud that it is with a hospital that provides excellent advanced pediatric care for children.

What will the David Ortiz Children's Fund support at MGH?
Mass General and the David Ortiz Children's Fund will collaborate in determining projects to be funded to care for critically-ill children. Gifts from the fund will allow MGH the flexibility to address the most urgent needs in MGHfC's pediatric services as they arise. One example of a program the DOCF may support is transport services, which will allow critically ill children to be quickly transported to MGHfC for immediate treatment.
Why did David select Mass General as his partner in New England?
(Dr. Slavin/David Ortiz)
Exceptional quality care and resources available at MGH, MGHfC, as a hospital within a major academic medical center, benefits from a breadth of resources not available in most hospitals. MGH serves children throughout New England, but its reach extends even further with many critically ill children being transported to MGH for care that local hospitals are not equipped to provide. MGH has a rich research enterprise with physicians and scientists working across disciplines to find solutions to serious medical problems. An answer to an adult issue may provide insights into an illness afflicting children. As chronically ill children approach adulthood, MGH can provide an easy transition to adult care.
