The work of the Ace Bailey Children’s Foundation focuses on the well-being of hospitalized children at the Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center, Boston. Through the building and renovation of hospital environments we improve the family-centered and softer side of hospital care. We strive to reduce the stress of pediatric hospitalization by creating environments that are less clinical in appearance, more comforting, soothing and just a lot more fun for kids and their families.
The Ace Bailey Children’s Foundation was established in memory of Garnet “Ace” Bailey who was killed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Ace played eleven seasons with the National Hockey League. While playing with the Boston Bruins he was a member of the Stanley Cup championship teams in 1969-70 and 1971-72. He went on to play for the Detroit Red Wings, the St. Louis Blues, the Washington Capitals and the Edmonton Oilers. When Ace’s playing career ended following the 1979-80 season he moved first to coaching and then to scouting. In his roles as player and then scout, Ace earned seven Stanley Cup Rings.
Ace Bailey loved kids and always wanted them to be having fun; that's the legacy that we carry forward in his memory
