ACE BAILEY CHILDRENS FOUNDATION wrote -
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’s family has created the Foundation to honor his memory and to perpetuate his deep caring for the happiness of children through making the hospital experience less stressful for children and their families.
The work of the Ace Bailey Children’s Foundation focuses on the well-being of hospitalized children through the building and renovation of hospital environments that 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 and more comforting and soothing for pediatric patients. The Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center in Boston is the recipient of our funding.
