Description:
The Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) (Centre hospitalier pour enfants de l'est de l'Ontario in French) is a major children's hospital and university teaching hospital in Ottawa, Ontario, serving Eastern Ontario and western Quebec. It is affiliated with The Ottawa Hospital and the University of Ottawa, and is funded by the provincial Government of Ontario. The Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario first opened its doors on May 17, 1974, and is located at 401 Smyth Road.

Funding

CHEO is funded by the provincial government of Ontario as well as by a variety of public donations. One of the hospital's major sources of funding comes from the CHEO Foundation.

CHEO Foundation

The Foundation was first formed in the 1960s when the community began raise over $4 million for the creation of a children's hospital. Later it officially became the CHEO Foundation, whose purpose is solely to raise funds to help support the work of the hospital. Donations help the hospital provide a wide variety of pediatric programs, research, state of the art equipment, medical and nursing education, and assistance to families in crisis.

Each year, the Foundation holds the CTV Telethon for CHEO, which is part of the North America-wide Children's Miracle Network. All funds raised locally benefit CHEO. In 2010, the Telethon raised a record $6.2 million for the hospital.
