When John and Alice Marriott opened a root beer stand in
Bands for Babies 1927, they could have never imagined the business impact
they would have in the hospitality industry, let alone the
tremendous contribution they would make in advancing
pediatric healthcare - including here at Orlando Health.
After running their original Hot Shoppes, the Marriott
family became known for the portfolio of hotels and resorts
they are associated with today. Along the way, they also
aligned themselves with Children’s Miracle Network (CMN)
Hospitals – a cause near and dear to their hearts, as Alice
Marriott’s mother had worked for Primary Children’s
Hospital in Salt Lake City.

Caring Classic A FIRST

As the first corporate partner to join in CMN Hospitals’
efforts to raise funds and awareness for charitable support
of pediatric healthcare, Marriott provided free rooms for
celebrity guests appearing on the organization’s national
telethon. More than 30 years later, the partnership has
evolved, and since the inception of this relationship, more
than $130 million has been raised by Marriott International
and Marriott Vacation Club properties across North America.
Since becoming a CMN member hospital in 1997, Orlando
Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children has benefitted
greatly from the generous spirit of Marriott International
and Marriott Vacations Worldwide guests, owners and
associates. CMN Hospitals’ funds have supported the Level
One Trauma Center, The Heart Center and the Child Life
department at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer, as well as the
NICU at Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women
& Babies. Their partnership also made possible the Marriott
International Radiology Waiting Room at Orlando Health
Arnold Palmer.

Torch Relay

Partners in Philanthropy

Giving to CMN Hospitals is part of Marriott’s Spirit to Serve Torch Relay
initiative and Marriott Vacation Club brands have continued Annual Root Beer Float Day
this legacy and support since Marriott Vacations Worldwide
became an independent, publicly held company in 2011.


As a year-round fundraising partner, Marriott Vacations
Worldwide associates, guests and owners raise funds
through large-scale events like the Caring Classic golf
tournament, conducting unique fundraising events at
resorts, participating in associate giving through payroll
deduction and participating in the local Torch Relay for
CMN Hospitals event in Orlando.
In 2012, Marriott Vacations Worldwide pledged to raise $1
million to support the expansion of the Alexander Center
for Neonatology at Orlando Health Winnie Palmer, which
opened its doors in 2014. This year, Marriott Vacations
Worldwide has pledged to support families once again,
making a commitment to raise $1.5 million over the next
five years to support the fetal surgery program at both
the Leon Pediatric Neuroscience Center of Excellence at
Orlando Health Arnold Palmer, and the Fetal Care Center at
Orlando Health Winnie Palmer.
With this recent addition, we bring together physicians of
multiple specialties and other clinicians to provide advanced
diagnostic services, the latest surgical and non-surgical
treatment options, comprehensive education and research.
For pediatric patients and for babies that would be born with
neurological conditions, such as spina bifida, this means
greater access to experts and more coordinated care – all
of which contribute to an improved quality of life. Orlando
Health Arnold Palmer and Orlando Health Winnie Palmer
now has one of only 12 programs in the country and the first
in Florida to offer in-utero surgery to repair spina bifida.
Charitable support makes these advancements possible, and
we are grateful for partners who want to make a difference in
the life of a child today, as well as invest in the care for future
patients. And to think, it all began with a hot summer day
and a root beer float, nearly 100 years ago.

A Caring Community


The multi-year giving societies were created as an easy way to help provide a recurring investment in the
mission of Orlando Health. Each multi-year giving society represents a community of dedicated individuals and
organizations whose generous contributions help meet vital ongoing operating needs. Members demonstrate
their support by committing to a five-year pledge with a minimum, annual contribution level.
Currently, there are three active giving societies comprising more than 350 members (and their families)
combined. These include:

• Advocates for Children – benefitting The Howard Phillips Center for Children & Families
• Champions Circle – benefitting Arnold Palmer Medical Center
• Visionary Partners – benefitting Orlando Health Orlando Regional Medical Center, Orlando Health

UF Health Cancer Center and Orlando Health – Health Central Hospital

Hospital leadership and doctors from across the Multi-Year Giving Societies enjoy a reception at Orlando Health Winnie Palmer.

“When physicians give back, it makes a statement to our patients and our
community at large,” said Dr. Jamal Hakim, Chief Operating Officer. “It
reinforces a belief in the work we’re doing and an investment in the future of
the organization. I’m proud to see the increasing number of physicians and
physician groups who continue to engage in our culture of philanthropy.”

Multi-year commitments demonstrate a spirit of caring that extends well beyond the bedside. These

Arnie’s March Against Children’s Cancer took place on
Tuesday, March 13th next to the 9th hole at Arnold Palmer’s
Bay Hill Club and Lodge. Every year, the march provides
an opportunity to recognize and honor cancer fighters,
their families and Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital
for Children staff and supporters. The event took place in
partnership with Arnie’s Army Charitable Foundation and
the space was provided by the Arnold Palmer Invitational
presented by Mastercard.
Thanks to our fundraisers, champion families, volunteers
and sponsors, the march has raised more than $830,000
over the past seven years. These funds help support cancer
research through clinical trials at the Haley Center for
Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders at Orlando Health

S T O R Y:


Liz and Ty Watkins were ecstatic when they found out that Liz was pregnant with their third child. Because of her
age, Liz’s doctor decided to perform an anatomy scan of the fetus at 18-weeks. Not long after, however, her physician
called with the news that she had seen something on the scan which concerned her and that they should meet with
a perinatologist. Just two days later, and within just five minutes, the perinatologist diagnosed the Watkins’ baby girl,
Scout, with spina bifida.

“The day of the diagnosis, I didn’t even know what spina bifida was,” explained Liz. “It
was like your worst fear piercing the core of your soul. It’s every mother’s worst fear to
think about something being wrong with their child, or what we consider wrong. My idea
of normal is very different now.”

Scout was diagnosed with what research defines as the most severe form of spina bifida - myelomeningocele. That
means that an area of her spine didn’t quite fold in all of the nerves together and it left an opening where everything
should have been closed. Scout also had early signs of hydrocephalus and enlarged ventricles, which can cause
the inability for the body to circulate its own spinal fluid. It was because of this diagnosis, that the perinatologist
suggested fetal surgery.
About two-and-a-half weeks later and because Arnold Palmer Medical Center was still building its capacity to care
for fetal surgery patients, Liz and her mom found themselves at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia having a surgery
in which the uterus is opened inside of the mother and surgery is performed on the fetus to repair the spinal defect.
The surgery places risk on both the mother and the baby and is not an option for all cases of spina bifida.
28 | Gratitude Report 2018

A Caring Community

“Ty and I decided early on that if we qualified for fetal surgery, we were going to go
for it,” said Liz. “After the surgery, my mom and I stayed in Philadelphia for 30 days
while Ty stayed at home with our kids. Two months after arriving back home to Florida,
we were the first family to deliver at Orlando Health Winnie Palmer Hospital for
Women & Babies post fetal surgery.”


With the recent addition of the first fetal surgery program in Florida at Orlando Health Winnie Palmer and
Orlando Health Arnold Palmer, families like the Watkins will no longer have to travel away from their home and
their family to receive treatment. With the new program, we bring together physicians of multiple specialties,
including surgeons and other clinicians, to provide advanced diagnostic services, the latest surgical and non-
surgical treatment options, comprehensive education and research. For pediatric patients with neurological
conditions, such as spina bifida, this means greater access to experts and more coordinated care – all of which
contribute to a better quality of life. | 29
