National Reach, Local Impact
In 2022, 592 hospitals and care facilities across the US received Starlight programs.
Since 1982, Starlight has developed a nation-wide network of hospital partners including children’s hospitals, specialty clinics and camps, respite houses, and hospice care facilities. Through this network, Starlight programs impact the lives of millions of seriously ill children and their families throughout the US.
Starlight is committed to the equitable allocation of our programs to our hospital network. In 2022, 53% of the facilities receiving our programs serve patients, based on Census demographics, that are considered medically underserved and/or vulnerable.
Starlight is America’s broadest reaching charity focused on sick kids and recognized as an integral part of the total care of hospitalized kids.
