Rejoicing in a Pain-Free Future
When Julia Schneider faced surgery two years ago to straighten her
curved spine, she was excited. “I had worn a brace for three and a half
years. Surgery meant a cure and no more brace!” Her parents, however,
were concerned. “Our healthy looking child would undergo nine and a
half hours of surgery with some significant risks,” says Ronna Greff
Schneider. To ease their minds, she and her husband, John, took Julia to
St. Louis for a second opinion. “That doctor agreed that surgery was
needed to correct the severe scoliosis, and confirmed that our surgeon
at Cincinnati Children’s, Alvin Crawford, MD, was the best we could get,”
Mrs. Schneider says. A successful procedure eventually freed Julia from
the pain in her back – and the restrictive brace. Today, the active 15year-old says, “The best things are being cured of the disease, having
a straight back, and knowing that I won’t have severe back pain later
in life.”
Dear Friends,
n a year that challenged the heart
and soul of our nation, Cincinnati
Children’s Hospital Medical Center
was reminded once again how precious
are the children and teenagers in our care
— and how essential is our work of bringing healing and hope.
Now more than ever, we have extraordinary opportunities to make a difference
for so many children. Focused clearly on
specific goals — and supported by the
human and financial resources needed to
achieve them — we have committed ourselves fully to achieving our vision:
Cincinnati Children’s will be the
leader in improving child health.
How do we make this vision a reality?
Our key to success lies in our new strategic
plan, introduced in 2001. It maps our way
to a successful future by focusing on
vision, values and behavior. We will make
a difference in the lives of children in
three ways:
• We will dramatically improve the
delivery of care
• We will greatly increase the impact of
our research
• We will implement new models of
education for pediatric professionals,
patients, families and the public
Our achievements in calendar year 2001
are summarized according to these goals,
to demonstrate how the plan is translating
into action.
Our new strategic plan injects added
momentum and direction into our longheld mission: to serve the health care
needs of infants, children and adolescents,
and to provide research and teaching programs that ensure delivery of the highest
quality pediatric care to our community,
the nation and the world.
Through the years, thousands of supporters
have made financial contributions that
enable us to touch even more children
and their families. Bolstered by their faith
in Cincinnati Children’s, we are inspired
to reach even farther and try even harder
to better the lives of our youngest citizens.
In this annual report, we gratefully
acknowledge those donors whose support
enables us to better serve the children and
families who come to us for care.
Together, we can achieve even greater
things for children. Please join us in our

Redefining Care for Complex Conditions
A simple concept is changing care for children with complex
conditions. Begun in 2001, new multidisciplinary efforts at
Cincinnati Children’s offer a convenient, single location where
patients and their families can receive comprehensive and wellintegrated care.
The Hemangioma and Vascular Malformation Center unites

Strategic Plan Cornerstone
World-class clinicians, nurses and therapists are essential to our work.
Yet exceptional care requires more. As we focus on quality, safety and
delivery, we will improve the care we give and deliver it more efficiently.
Radical change will become part of our thinking. We will serve families
better with innovative ways of managing care across traditional medical
disciplines. Strong efforts in prevention and health promotion will lead
to generations of healthier children.
hospital priorities from a family perspective.
Today’s most advanced pediatric health care
professionals recognize that families know
their children best and should be partners in
all aspects of their children’s care.
Small bowel transplants offer hope to children whose small
intestine is severely compromised due to disease or catastrophic conditions. Without a transplant, these infants must
depend on intravenous feedings (IV) for the rest of their lives.
If they don’t adapt to IV feeding, they can develop end-stage
liver disease and die of cirrhosis. The cost of IV feeding over a
lifetime is much greater than that of undergoing a successful
intestinal transplant, and a transplant greatly improves the
quality of life.

New Logo Reflects Our Vision
The energy and scope of our new
strategic plan is conveyed in our
new name, logo and visual identity
system. As the reputation of
Cincinnati Children’s has grown
regionally and nationally, the need
for a distinct, recognizable “brand”
identity has increased. The word
“Cincinnati,” included for the first
time as a formal part of our logo,
emphasizes our roots and tradition
and also sets us apart from other
pediatric hospitals.
A third of all children are born with a vascular lesion. About 10
percent of them require medical treatment, and of this group,
one percent have complex conditions that may be severely
disfiguring or potentially life-threatening. Our center is one of
only a few in the United States that offers comprehensive
evaluation and treatment for these children and their families.

Cincinnati Children’s Outpatient Services at Drake Center is the
latest effort to make care more convenient for families — and to
extend our expertise to areas where it’s most needed. With generous support from Convalescent Hospital for Children, Greater

Working to Solve a Community Crisis
Despite rising numbers of psychosocial
problems identified in children, many local
psychiatric providers have reduced services or
closed their doors. The result is a community
crisis. With support from Convalescent
Hospital for Children, Cincinnati Children’s
has moved to close the gap by purchasing a

Fanconi anemia is one of the inherited anemias that lead to bone
marrow failure, or aplastic anemia. It may be evident at birth; it is
usually diagnosed by age 12. Fanconi anemia usually becomes more
severe over time; some patients may develop leukemia or other cancers. Many do not reach adulthood since the condition may affect all
systems of the body. At Cincinnati Children’s, quality, comprehensive
care is available, along with innovative research and evaluation of
new therapies. Patients may participate in clinical trials conducted
by the center.

superior audiovisual equipment. The center
greatly enhances our ability to hold educational events for both health professionals
and the community, foster educational
programming, and strengthen our role as a
leader in pediatric health care education.
A partnership formed in 2001 between
Cincinnati Children’s and 14 AfricanAmerican churches and their ministers has
resulted in a 100 percent increase in the use
of child safety seats among children age 8

children riding totally unrestrained decreased
from 36 percent to 10 percent. Preliminary
results suggest that the program was also
very effective in teaching parents that
children should ride in the back seat of
a vehicle.

they rely on clinics at Cincinnati Children’s for
care. These grade-schoolers also experience
a disproportionate number of illnesses and
academic underachievement. So Rockdale’s

“It’s a miracle we ever found out that Austan had a hole in his heart,” says his mother, Kelly
Harris, of Dayton, Ohio. Two years ago, Austan started wheezing while playing with his brother’s
toy bank. A trip to the emergency department dispelled fears that he had swallowed a coin, but a
chest X-ray showed an enlarged heart. Further tests revealed a hole in the one-year-old’s heart
that his doctors would monitor for changes. Although he had no symptoms, an echocardiogram
late in 2001 showed that the hole was growing, so Austan’s pediatric cardiologist referred the
family to pediatric heart surgeon Peter Manning, MD, at Cincinnati Children’s. On January 29,
Austan’s hole was repaired in open heart surgery. “Now we have to make him sit down and rest.
He’s doing great,” says Mrs. Harris.

Children’s Circle of Care
Children’s Circle of Care advances the work of pediatric patient care, research and
teaching by encouraging and recognizing annual major gifts to participating children’s hospitals in North America, including Cincinnati Children’s. The program
also seeks to educate the public about child health issues and the unique mission
and service of children’s hospitals.
In 2001, local Children’s Circle of Care members donated almost $9 million to
Cincinnati Children’s. Qualifying members are individuals or family foundations
who gave $10,000 or more in a single gift or cumulative giving in 2001, or whose
cumulative history of giving to Cincinnati Children’s has exceeded $1 million.
These dedicated men and women demonstrate an extraordinary commitment to
our unique mission with their willingness to invest in our future.

A New Direction for Down Syndrome Care
Thanks to a baby born in Cincinnati seven years ago, the
60,000 children nationwide with Down syndrome will benefit
from new knowledge generated at Cincinnati Children’s. When
Emily Hayes entered the world with Down syndrome, her family
learned all they could to help her grow and develop. But
they discovered that so much more could be done to research
the best treatments and coordinate care. So in 1999 her
grandparents first established the Emily Hayes Down Syndrome
Research Fund, then in 2001 created the Jane and Richard
Thomas Center for Down Syndrome at Cincinnati Children’s.
"Now, children with Down syndrome will have a comprehensive
program in a single center devoted just to their needs," says
proud grandfather Richard Thomas.

Teen’s Computers Make Waiting Fun
One 13-year-old discovered he could give
back to his community, make other children
When Scott Olman celebrated his bar
mitzvah, he asked friends and family to
donate to Cincinnati Children’s instead of
giving him gifts. “Everything I really want
or need, I already have,” Scott says. Many
visits over the years to the Division of
Orthopaedics pointed to an obvious need
for better computers and games in the
waiting room. “When the computers
arrived, I set them up, which was fun. But
the best part of all was knowing that I
made other kids feel happy and occupied
while waiting for their doctors.”

Celebrating a Life Saved
Forty years ago, Beth Johnson returned from summer camp. Her
mother, Betty, was shocked when she set eyes on her daughter.
Mrs. Johnson recalls, “I said to my husband, ‘Look at Beth. She’s
gray. She’s dying.’” Unfortunately, her diagnosis was accurate. The
family’s pediatrician recognized that Beth’s appendix had burst
five days earlier, spreading a terrible infection throughout her
body. “I really thought we would lose her,” Mrs. Johnson says. But
months of care at Cincinnati Children’s restored her to health, and
today Beth lives in Washington, D.C., with her family. To honor
her daughter and the care she received, Mrs. Johnson supports the

This family of donors has remembered Cincinnati Children’s in their estate plans and
has notified the medical center of their intentions to invest in our future through
planned or deferred gift arrangements. The society’s name honors a Cincinnati
humanitarian who understood how best to preserve his values. In 1931, Colonel
Procter initiated an endowment that led to the creation of our Research Foundation,
which today provides assurance that our children will receive the best care possible.

Their Gifts Say ‘Thank You’
“Cincinnati Children’s has given a life to our second son, Brian,”
says Elroy Bourgraf. In gratitude, Mr. Bourgraf and his wife,
Elaine, have donated generously to the medical center. Born in
1963 with a rare birth defect, Brian Bourgraf was expected to
live 6 months. Instead, Lester Martin, MD, performed 19
surgeries, including a double kidney transplant. Kidney specialist
Clark West, MD, monitored his drug regimen. Today, Brian, now
married, leads a rewarding life working in the family business
and stays in touch with the physicians who saved his life. To
honor these doctors, Elroy and Elaine supported the creation of
endowed chairs. They also included Cincinnati Children’s in their
estate plans and continue to make substantial annual gifts.

Unfortunately, it was not possible to list the names of all our donors
due to the space constraints of this publication. Cincinnati Children’s
gratefully acknowledges all gifts from our generous family of donors.
The Cooperative Society
Cincinnati Children’s first auxiliary, the Cooperative Society serves the medical center by making
clothing, blankets and dolls for the children, as well as funding an on-site sewing room. The society
hosts an annual luncheon for all community volunteers who sew for the hospital, whether in the
sewing room or at home. In addition, members decorate the hospital lobbies and public spaces
for holidays.
Projects of new interest include the Family Resource Center, addressing the needs of families of
children with chronic conditions. After more than 100 years of service, the Cooperative Society
retains its long-standing traditions and welcomes new members to its organization.
President: Ms. Deborah Graumlich
Donation: $463,010
There’s something to delight every
child in the gift shop at Cincinnati
Children’s, which expanded in
2001 to offer more space for toys,
games and trinkets. The Junior
Funny Companie Clowns
How much fun can you have in 18 years? The Funny Companie Clowns should know. They’ve
entertained children and raised funds for Cincinnati Children’s through many volunteer performances,
including birthday parties, company picnics, Sunday brunches, community events and public awareness campaigns. “Dr. Funn,” “Hobo Fo” and “Dolly Dimples” are three adult clowns who spread
laughter wherever they go.
President: Mr. Don Bachmann
Donation: $4,640
Cooperative Society, which operates
and staffs the gift shop, donates all
proceeds to improve care at
Cincinnati Children’s.
FunRaisers, the preeminent philanthropic singles organization in Greater Cincinnati, raises funds
for Hematology/Oncology Division research at Cincinnati Children’s. Since 1985, the members have
supported the hospital financially through many activities, including membership dues, scheduled
parties, special events and corporate donations. About 50 parties and events are held per year, with
total combined attendance approaching 10,000 people.
FunRaisers’ contributions have been used for hematology/oncology research and to provide a video
and handbook for newly diagnosed patients and their families. More than $390,000 has already
been donated to help find a cure for pediatric cancer. FunRaisers also sponsors an annual picnic and
a special visit from Santa Claus to hospital patients.
President: Ms. Jan Eide
Donation: $44,052
Good Bears
Founded in 1984, the Good Bears auxiliary provides a specially designed teddy bear for each child admitted to Cincinnati
Children’s. This auxiliary is also raising funds for the renovation of the Interfaith Chapel and Meditation Room in the medical
center’s patient tower.
To fulfill their goals, the Good Bears rely on individual and corporate support from the Greater Cincinnati community. New
members are welcome.
President: Mr. Eric Stevens
Donation: 1333 Bears
Volunteer Fundraisers
Junior Cooperative Society
The dedicated support of our auxiliaries and special groups is essential to the success
of Cincinnati Children’s. For more than a century, volunteers have raised funds and
assisted the medical center in many ways. While the auxiliaries and special groups vary
in their activities, they share a common bond: a pride in Cincinnati Children’s and
what they can help us accomplish.
Association of Volunteers
Founded in 1964, the Association of Volunteers provides "tender loving care" for the patients of Convalescent Hospital for
Children, an affiliate of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. The association created and sponsors the annual
Cincinnati Antiques Festival to raise funds for the Convalescent Hospital. The four-day festival has grown into one of the finest
antique shows in the country and one of the most anticipated events of the local and regional calendar.
President: Mrs. Marianne Miller
Donation: $50,050
Established in 1910, the Junior Cooperative Society auxiliary operates and staffs the newly expanded gift shop of Cincinnati
Children’s. The shop is packed with toys, games, novelties and unusual trinkets to cheer the spirits of hospitalized children and
their families.
The Junior Cooperative Society has donated funds toward the purchase of major medical equipment. The auxiliary also provides
funding for the Infectious Diseases Division and for endowed research fellowships in pediatric infectious diseases.
President: Mrs. Carolyn Kite
Donation: $50,000
The largest Cincinnati Children’s auxiliary, Kindervelt is recognized as one of Greater Cincinnati’s outstanding volunteer organizations. It is composed of neighborhood or other common-interest groups joined together by a central, city-wide board of trustees.
Kindervelt welcomes new members and encourages the formation of new groups. Its members reflect a cross-section of people
and geographic areas of the Tristate region. The goal of "having fun while raising funds" is met without requiring specific time
commitments or financial quotas. In 2001, Kindervelt reached a milestone: donations since 1971 now total more than $10 million.
President: Mrs. Karen Post
Donation: $525,000

Members of the Emery Society share the vision of Mary, Thomas and Josiah Emery, the founders of Cincinnati Children’s,
through contributions that help us to offer the highest quality pediatric care. Each year, the society focuses on fundraising for a
specific vital program or service. In 2001, members’ annual gifts of $1,000 or more supported the Kelly O’Leary Center for

Books to Brighten a Hospital Stay
How could children practice the Islamic
principle of being kind and wishing well
to others? For youngsters at the Islamic
Center of Greater Cincinnati Sunday
School and the International Academy of
Cincinnati, the answer was simple. They
collected 150 books to donate to
Cincinnati Children’s, each inscribed with
a “get well” wish from the children, says
teacher and parent Sufia Sultan. “We
chose to gather books instead of toys
