Statement from Lifespan President & CEO Timothy J. Babineau, M.D. on Postponement of the Hasbro Children’s Hospital Heroes Ball
After much thoughtful deliberation, and out of an abundance of caution, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the annual Hasbro Children’s Hospital Heroes Ball, planned for this Saturday, March 7, to a later date.
The ball is a very special annual event and one that highlights the important role of our children’s hospital in this state. We deeply regret having to make this decision—particularly so close to the actual event. However, we must consider the large number of health care providers who would be in attendance, many of whom provide unique and essential health care services to the state and the region. The risk, as low as it would be, of having an exposure to the Covid-19 virus at the event that would require quarantine of these individuals is one that we simply can’t take. These are the physicians, nurses, therapists and other clinicians who care for our children and adults when they are sick or injured. If they were to be quarantined for any reason, the impact on our hospitals would be significant.
Our decision, though difficult, is intended to protect our care givers, our supporters and the patients that we serve.
Every day we treat hundreds of children who rely on Hasbro Children's Hospital for the very best care available. And every day, we rely on support from caring people like you to help ensure our vital work continues. Philanthropy is the cornerstone of everything we do. Every gift, no matter the size, makes an enormous difference. Each gift is an investment in the future of pediatric medicine, research, and medical education in southeastern New England. Please join us!
At Hasbro Children’s Hospital and Bradley Hospital we see children for their potential, not just their illness. Today, our care teams are addressing children’s physical health and their emotional wellbeing together. As leading medical and psychiatric children’s hospitals in one health care system, we have a unique opportunity to unite our expertise through collaborations that support both treatment and research.
