The benefit concert supports Nationwide Children’s Hospital and the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation Alliance, benefiting the Memorial Tournament Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
Since its inception in 2007, the annual benefit concert has raised more than $925,000 for the Memorial Tournament NICU.
In June 2010 a charitable alliance was announced among the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance, Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation for the benefit and advancement of pediatric care. With this aligned vision, all proceeds of the concert directly benefit the young patients served each day by the Memorial Tournament NICU at Nationwide Children’s.
Advancing pediatric care in the Memorial Tournament NICU is already evident with its family-centered environment that provides the finest medical care for premature and sick infants. The NICU is one of the largest neonatal networks in the country. Rigorously trained neonatologists, advanced practice nurses and therapists utilize an interdisciplinary care approach to diagnose and treat patients suffering from complex birth defects, respiratory distress and metabolic diseases. This combined expertise makes the Memorial Tournament NICU one of the finest in the nation.
