Attract resources to enhance the quality of life of the Pediatric Hospital community, including patients, caregivers, medical residents, doctors and support staff.


Help the Pediatric Hospital at Medical Center to become the best option for the health of children and adolescents.

Why help?



Our History

The Pediatric Hospital Foundation was established in 2014 to support the University Pediatric Hospital Dr. Antonio Ortiz located in the Puerto Rico Medical Center.  This hospital is the most important medical institution for children and adolescents in Puerto Rico.  Thanks to the vision and energy of numerous doctors and volunteers, the Foundation has become an essential part of the hospital community.


The Foundation raises funds aimed for the renovation of the hospital, specifically patient facilities and parent waiting areas. It also donates monitoring and treatment devices for patients and fulfills other needs that the hospital identifies for the treatment for the children.

The Pediatric Hospital Foundation is run exclusively with donations and with the support of local corporations, private foundations, and citizens that feel the need to make a lasting difference in the way healthcare is provided to children across the island.
