Quick and thorough care “I want to say thank you to all who helped take care of my son, Easton. Starting with Dr. Liesen and his staff at the pediatric clinic, I got an appointment right away. I called at noon and had an appointment at 1:15 p.m. Dr. Liesen and his staff were im-mediately concerned. He had my son directly admitted to the pediatric fl oor at Women’s and Children’s Hospital. As soon as we stepped on the fl oor, nurses and doctors were ready for Easton. I truly appreciate Dr. Koehn, Dr. Mildenhall and Dr. Houck for getting orders ready stat and to the nurses, Shelly and Courtney, for their attention to Easton. Corinne with Child Life Services was awesome to help distract Easton during the chest X-ray and IV insertion. Easton recovered quickly and we are so grateful to all who cared for him. ThAnk you! ” Elizabeth F., Harrisburg Young philanthropists support Children’s Hospital “I had a lemonade stand and I tried to make as much money as I could. Guess what? I made $81. I was so glad!!

Thankful for amazing care “We were so thankful for the amazing care our daughter received. I cannot say enough good things about the team of doctors and nurses who worked so well together to provide our daughter with the treatment she desperately needed to recover from pneumonia and possibly asthma. I honestly don’t like to think about what might have been had she not made it to Children’s Hospital when she did. I know the Lord brought us to the hospital and I am so glad he did.
