Sala Institute for Child and Family Centered Care

Your gift will help children and families experience exceptional care. 

The Sala Institute for Child and Family Centered Care is a unique partnership among children, families, and health professionals that is focused on advancing the practice of family-centered care at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital and beyond.

Sala’s work revolves around the belief that family-centered care—embracing children and their families as full partners with their medical team—is better care. 

Sala promotes, designs, and funds programs that advance the practice of family-centered care at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital and beyond. Our efforts are focused on four priority areas:

  • We foster excellent care, comfort, and well-being 
  • We engage children and families as partners
  • We work as a team to eliminate preventable harm
  • We accelerate innovations in family-centered care

With your support for the Sala Institute, you’ll become part of a community of people helping advance the practice of family-centered care, and the care of children and families who experience complex or chronic illness.

Supporter Impact

Sofia was diagnosed with leukemia shortly after her third birthday. When you're given that diagnosis, it's not something you can explain to somebody. Your world gets rocked. You feel like you're in a bubble, and the only place you feel safe is here.

Why We Give

Sala is named after my mother, Sala Elbaum—and I could not think of a better tribute to her. When a child gets sick, the family’s world gets turned upside down. Sala is a way of reaching out to that child and family, of providing help—of offering everything they need.
