Patient Wish List

Patients at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital rely on the generosity of our community to brighten their hospital stay. Your donation of new, unused, unwrapped gifts helps create a comfortable, healing environment.

Following is a list of suggested items that patients frequently need. You also may select from our Amazon wish list.

For gift card or monetary donations, please contact the Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital Foundation at 954-265-3454 or JDCHfoundation@mhs.net.

Thank you for your interest in donating to our patients.

Donation Drop-Off Procedure

  • Donations can be delivered to the main entrance of Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital located at 1005 Joe DiMaggio Drive, Hollywood, Florida, 33021. (A colorful statue sits near the building’s entrance in the center of the circular driveway, near the valet.) 
  • Please drop off donations between 8 am and 8 pm, 7 days a week.
