Those words are not just a campaign theme at Seattle Children’s. More, they are a potent reminder, an enduring commitment, an unwavering mandate to do everything it can to deliver on a bold vision: to transform childhood health for generations to come. It’s a vision that is national in scope, reaching across and beyond Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho―states that represent the largest service area of any children’s hospital in the U.S. It’s also a vision that plays out in a personal way, focusing on one child and one family at a time:
- • •
CAN WE BRING HOPE TO A FAMILY IN THEIR TIME OF NEED?
CAN WE PROVIDE THE CARE THAT WILL GIVE HER THE HEALTHIEST POSSIBLE FUTURE?
CAN WE FIND A CURE FOR HIS LIFE-THREATENING DISEASE AND NOT JUST TREAT THE SYMPTOMS?
- • •
These are the questions that Seattle Children’s continually asks. And all responses point toward yes.
“We see a day when we can say yes to hope, care and cure every time, for every child,” says Dr. Jeff Sperring, Seattle Children’s energetic Chief Executive Officer. “To get there, we need to continue to push, to innovate, to advocate, relentlessly. We need to ‘go big.’”
