Care for Children, Compassion for Families
Mary Bridge Children’s Foundation is here because our community is committed to caring for its children, close to home and family.
MultiCare Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital & Health Center, Southwest Washington’s only pediatric hospital, is a place of hope and healing for kids and their families. Designated by the state as the Level II Pediatric Trauma Center for our region, Mary Bridge offers the highest quality care for critically ill or injured children. In Mary Bridge, we have a tremendous resource, offering young patients the expert specialty care and leading-edge treatment they need to thrive.
When you support Mary Bridge, you help ensure that children in our community get the high-quality care they deserve. Thanks to your ongoing commitment we can purchase the latest equipment, attract the most talented specialists and provide the kind of hospital facilities that meet the needs of young patients and their families—and help them heal. Thank you for being there for Mary Bridge. Because of your generosity, Mary Bridge can be there for children.

Where the Need Is Greatest
This fund is allocated by volunteers from the community who serve on the Mary Bridge Children's Foundation Board. They decide "where the need is greatest" for the year.
These funds are used by social workers in direct support of patients and families who need a little extra help. It pays for items that the child urgently needs but the family cannot afford such as prescriptions or wheelchairs.
Tree House: A Place for Families
Tree House is a renovated apartment building that gives family members a place to stay while their child is hospitalized. It gives families a place to sleep, shower, prepare a meal and support one another. Rates are on a sliding scale based on ability to pay; no family is turned away.
Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU)
The PICU cares for children who are suffering from traumatic injury or a critical illness. Your contribution funds new equipment and technology that help our specialists save lives. It also supports the expansion of the facility to provide family-centered care and serve our growing population.
Bridges: A Center for Grieving Children
Children grieve differently than adults. Bridges offers support groups tailored to children from 4 to 18 who have lost a parent or sibling or are living with someone who is critically ill. Your contributions help fund Bridges programs, including Camp Erin. Camp Erin combines counseling and an outdoor retreat, allowing grieving children to connect with each other and recover their childhood.
