Children’s National Medical Center is known for its world-class expertise in pediatric medicine. A child receives the care that they need regardless of whether or not they have insurance. That is why the continued support of the hospital’s donors is so important and appreciated. Some have supported Children’s National Medical Center over many years.
The Lexus dealers of the Washington, D.C. area began supporting Children’s National Medical Center as club sponsors in 2000. In 2003, they became title sponsors and have remained a major partner ever since. These local dealers are committed to the support of Children’s National because they see how important giving back is and want to support ongoing research, treatment, education, and outreach. They are a group comprised of four dealerships including:
* Lexus of Rockville
* Lexus of Silver Spring
* Lindsay Lexus of Alexandria
* Pohanka Lexus of Chantilly
Amy and Brett Baier
For some, supporting Children’s National Medical Center comes from the first-hand experience of the hospital’s work. Amy and Brett Baier’s son Paul received life-saving treatment at Children’s National after being born with defects in his heart. Since then, the Baiers have been steadfast supporters of the hospital because they understand how important the care that Children’s National Medical Center provides is for children and their families. Amy serves on the board of the Children’s Hospital Foundation and has co-hosted the annual Children’s Ball which brings in millions for the hospital each year.
The Government of the United Arab Emirates
The United Arab Emirates has sent children to Children’s National Medical Center for over a decade to receive treatment. But in 2009, the government took its support a step further by giving a gift of $150 million to the hospital to create the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation.
The United Arab Emirates Ambassador to the United States, Yousef Al Otaiba and his wife Abeer, have also supported the hospital for a long time. They also depended on the institute when their daughter Samia was born with a malformation on her lungs that was removed when she was 4 months-old.
Children’s National Medical Center continues to provide excellent medical care to children in Washington, D.C. and around the world. There are many ways to support its ongoing efforts.
