Campaign to Rebuild Oakland Children's Hospital
Oakland Children’s Hospital serves children with the most complex and serious illnesses, like leukemia, cancer, heart defects, sickle cell anemia, diabetes and cystic fibrosis. The hospital is nearly 100 years old. Built in 1912, Oakland Children’s Hospital is not adequate and must be rebuilt to address existing and future needs and to meet seismic safety standards. The Campaign to Rebuild Oakland Children's Hospital is a grassroots effort to raise awareness about the Hospital's need to rebuild and the initiative that will provide the funding necessary to do so. The 'Rebuild Children's Hospital Initiative' will be on California's February 5th, 2008 primary ballot.
