For more than 80 years, East Tennessee Children's Hospital has touched
the lives of millions of children in Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky and
beyond. From chronic illnesses to routine exams, we treat every visit
as an opportunity to shine our light.
Hospital visits can be stressful for children. Whether they've planned
to be at our door or not, families often feel anxious when faced with
illness. We've spent years practicing family-centered medicine - meaning
we don't just treat the patient, we treat the whole family. Children
heal faster when their parents and siblings are involved.

This season, we invite you to shine your light on the families we serve
and to let them know they aren’t alone.
In December, you will notice some local businesses and attractions lighting
up blue for East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. Our goal is to raise
awareness for our patient families. We hope that wherever you see the
blue lights, you're reminded that right now hundreds of children could
use your support as they receive life-saving surgeries and treatments.
Children are special, and they deserve specialized care. We could not provide
our expert services without the support and generosity of donors in our
community. We are asking you, our neighbors, to help us raise critical
funds to support the programs and services that make an impact on our
community and beyond.
