About the “Let’s Keep Kids Out of Hospital” Awards Program
CHEO knows that many individuals, programs, organizations and businesses in the community we serve not only share our approach, but also make important contributions to addressing these root cause issues. The “Let’s Keep Kids Out of Hospital” Awards is a formal, annual program that was created to recognize initiatives that go “above and beyond” in addressing one of four root causes and in doing so raise awareness and inspire others.
