Funds raised through sponsorships and from golf participants of the Charity Classic, support the Women & Children’s Center at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital. Welcoming more than 1,500 newborns per year, more babies are born at Wentworth-Douglass than at any other hospital on the Seacoast.
For years, our Car Seat Program has been a highly sought out resource for parents, grandparents and childcare providers in the community. We offer free monthly checks and inpatient checks as well as staff and patient education on the safety of a properly installed child restraint system.
Since launching in 2019, the Seacoast Babies App has been well-received by both patients and providers. The app will continue to be updated, providing patients with accurate information pertinent to their care.
Scholarships for children to participate in Pediatric Therapeutic Programs like art, music, swim and hippo therapy (horseback riding) are made possible by you.
We offer Maternal Mental Health Support Programs which include Labor and Postpartum Doula Support for families in need, a weekly support group for women with postpartum depression and anxiety, bereavement coordination and more. We remain the only hospital in the area offering these services and the most comprehensive care for women in their childbearing years.
Thanks to our generous supporters, the Fund-A-Need Program has raised significant funds to purchase critical pieces of equipment for the Women & Children’s Center at Wentworth-Douglass Hospital.
In 2022, nearly $13,500 was raised to purchase the GE Omnibed Giraffe Carestation; a critical piece of equipment that regulates temperature, provides a safe incubator and reduces environmental stress for premature babies.
