Background Statement

All Children's Hospital Guild is a volunteer service organization which advocates, volunteers, and fundraises for children and families of All Children's Hospital. It was formed in 1949 in St. Petersburg, Florida and has grown to more than 450 members and nine Branches.  The nine Branches cover four counties, with further expansion plans across Florida in the works.

The Branches host more than fifty fundraising events throughout the year in our effort to support this mission. Events include galas, golf tournaments, fashion shows, polo event, bunco parties and much more.Our vision is supporting healthy tomorrows for one child, for All Children.


Our history of caring

The Sarasota/Manatee Branch was organized in 1997 by a handful of dedicated, energetic volunteers and it has continued to grow since then. The funds raised support not only the Hospital but also the All Children’s Hospital Outpatient Centers here in Sarasota . 100% of the funds raised go to benefit local children of our community.

Over the years, our local Sarasota/Manatee Branch has provided philanthropic support for All Child Hospital Outpatient Center in our community and the Hospital. Some of the projects that we have funded since 1997 include:

  • A Therapeutic Playground for the Outpatient Center in Sarasota
  • Wheelchair & premature scales, other specialized equipment for newborns
  • The Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) clinical study and follow up care of babies born addicted to drugs in the Sarasota community
  • The Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Program which assists children with challenging behavior problems through treatment at the Outpatient Centers of Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch 
  • At the Hospital our branch along with the other 8 branches have funded the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in the new All Children’s Hospital, as well as a Palliative Care Program

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
Description Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) is a growing problem among infants in Sarasota County. There has been an increase of approximately 700% of babies exposed prenatally to addictive drugs who exhibit physical and behavioral symptoms of NAS after birth. Most end up in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Sarasota Memorial Hospital. 


A new Follow-Up Clinic at All Children's Outpatient Care Center in Sarasota will give these babies, discharged from the NICU at Sarasota Memorial, access to a variety of special services to help them overcome NAS. The clinic is being funded by a $70,000 grant from the All Children's Hospital Guild Sarasota/Manatee Branch.

"We are concerned about the impact of NAS on babies," said Shirley Jankelevich, M.D., an All Children's Hospital physician who will lead the clinic. "The Follow-Up Clinic will help us provide support for these infants and their families."

The Follow-Up Clinic will offer a variety of services, including: Occupational and Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy, Feeding Therapy and Applied Behavior Analysis. The Healthy Start Coalition of Sarasota will supply a social worker to assist families in the program.

"This program will help give babies a new lease on life," said Kay Aidlin, President of the All Children's Hospital Guild Sarasota/Manatee Branch. "We are happy to provide the funding to support such a needed program in the Sarasota community."

We are the only clinics serving the NAS population in our area.
This unique team and community approach is serving the multiple needs of NAS infants and their families to utilize the expertise of highly specialized pediatric professionals, that is not found in a non-clinic type of medical setting

The Palliative Care Program at All Children's Hospital is designed to provide an active and comprehensive interdisciplinary approach to serving children who are our patients with life-threatening or life-limiting conditions. The interdisciplinary team includes physicians, a nurse practitioner, a social worker, a child life specialist, and a chaplain. The team focuses on enhancing the quality of life for the child and family throughout the trajectory of the child’s illness. In addition to dealing with medical issues surrounding chronic illness, the team addresses the emotional, psychological, and spiritual needs of the child and family.

Short Term Success

The program is 2.5 years old. Our measure of success is based upon growing the program and increasing the number of patients referred to the Palliative Care Program. Our referrals have shown good growth since the program’s inception:





Feb 2012-Jun 2012 (4 mos.)




Jul 2012-Jun 2013 (12 mos.)




Jul 2013-Jan 2014 (6+ mos.)








We are on track for an annualized volume of 150+ total patient consults.

Long Term Success

The Palliative Care Team is able to follow the child throughout the trajectory of the child’s illness and provide consistency throughout the child’s multiple admissions to the hospital. The consistent follow-up allows for clarity of communication regarding the child’s and family’s goals of care to the usually multiple sub-specialists involved in caring for the child. The team is also able to identify what is the family’s definition of quality of life for their child.

We work in partnership with palliative care providers in the community.

Program Success Monitoring

We are in the process of developing a family satisfaction survey to measure our long-term success.

We currently are monitoring the number of consults requested, the length of stay, referrals to community palliative care programs, and deaths that occur outside of the ICU setting. We will begin to look at other outcome monitors as our program matures.

Program Success Examples


  • The Palliative Care Team provides consistency of care by following the patient during multiple hospitalizations throughout the illness.
  • The Team is an extra support for the patient,family,and health care team; available to have in depth conversations on a daily basis if needed.
  • The Team can develop care goals consistent with the patient’s and family’s definition of quality of life and advocates for the patient and family.

Scenario: Jim was a 5-month old baby,in NICU since birth,with a large tumor in his neck, when he was referred to Team Hope for palliative care services. Despite all the physicians’ efforts,nothing could stop the tumor’s growth. He had breathing and feeding tubes,and on a ventilator. Team Hope was consulted to work with the parents to determine what their goals were.

The family wanted to bring Jim home for what time he had left. Although hospice care was discussed,they did not want him to go to an inpatient hospice. The family learnt how to care for Jim at home, including breathing tube and ventilator care. Team Hope and the primary care team worked with community resources for home nursing care and home visits from a pediatrician.
Team Hope provided support to the family to help them understand his condition and what to expect when he got home. The health care team did not think that his life expectancy would be very long. The child life specialist helped with memory-making,the chaplain helped the family discuss spiritual values and the social worker helped get services in place in the home. He was discharged at the end of November.
As of today, Jim is still with us. His mother says he is happy,interacts with his family and is walking. While we don’t know how long Jim will be with us,we think he has continued to survive because of the positive experience of being at home. Without Team Hope’s involvement, Jim may have lived out his life in the hospital. Quality of life is what palliative care is all about.
The trainer gently moves the child's legs or arms.  It will be used with children with cerebral palsy, stroke, cardiac surgery, cancer and other acute and chronic diagnoses.  Either passive, motor assisted or active resistive training is used with the child's own muscle strength, as selected by the occupational or physical therapist.  Movements are smoothly controlled, like bicycling.  Children can train from a chair, wheelchair or lying down.  Movement is critical for children to learn, interact with peers and play, and this equipment will help them to achieve their goals.

Short Term Success
There is a specially developed MOTOmed game which can make the game character Max jump up, by engaging the right and left side of the child's body. Due to the simple and fun principle of the game, physical activity is rewarded and the user is motivated to train for a longer time.  Many children who need physical therapy may be coming for long period of time and equipment like the MOTOmed helps them to enjoy therapy as well as participate longer in the strengthening exercises.   
Long Term Success
The passive MOTOmed movement can lead to a reduction in muscle tone for children with spasticity and it prevents the shortening of muscles and the occurrence of contractures.  In addition, it allows children to develop strength in their arms and legs through fun and motivating exercise.  This strength will translate over to functional gains with things like standing, walking and climbing stairs.   
Program Success Monitoring
Success is measured on a case by case basis for each child.  Therapists determine specific functional goals for children and the MOTOmed help them to meet these goals.   
Program Success Examples
Success of using the MOTOmed will be determined by how long children participate on the trainer compared to typical therapeutic exercise, their satisfaction with the equipment as well as their success with meeting their functional goals.   
Program Comments by Organization
The MOTOmed  Movement Trainer still requires $6,000.00 which can be given in increments of $1,000.00.
