Chukchansi Supports Children's


A generous grant from the Chukchansi Indians and Madera County will help Children’s Hospital provide even better care to their patients.

The $262,080 was provided through the Community Grant Program of the Picayune Rancheria of the Chukchansi Indians and the County of Madera. It will be used to fund wireless patient care devices that keep track of the patients’ health and medication records, reducing the chance of medical errors and streamlining their care.

“We are so honored to be selected as the recipient of this grant,” said James Meinert, Vice President, Philanthropy, Children’s Hospital. “We truly appreciate this precious investment in the health and care of our patients.”

Patient care devices are some of the most utilized pieces of equipment in the hospital and play a critical role in providing consistent day-to-day healthcare delivery.  Due to the high demand and continuous use of these devices their life cycles are limited to a maximum of three years. 

Children’s Hospital has a goal to secure eighty new patient care devices.  They will be used as the hospital continues to fully integrate technology related to patient care into a delivery system that is state-of-the-art, efficient, and focused on quality healthcare outcomes and patient safety in particular.

Please join us in this exciting effort to help our most precious resource ─ our children.  For more information on how to support the Campaign for Children’s contact Peggy Dunlap at the Foundation  office, 559.353.7108 or Donate Online.  Thank you for becoming a “Champion for Children’s.
