CFTK Funded Projects
The Kentucky Children’s Hospital Mobile Unit has the capacity to see up to 1,100 patients per year in pediatric cardiology, hemophilia/blood disorders, high BMI, and adolescent mental health. The unit can also serve as a primary pediatric service with the ability to complete routine well visits and sports/school physicals.
The Mobile Unit was established with several lead gifts to purchase and outfit the vehicle and staff it for the first two years of operation, including $500,000 from Coaches for the Kids Foundation. As of 2022 a vendor has been selected, production is underway, and the unit is expected hit the road later this year.

UK Zero Suicide Academy
Zero Suicide is a framework designed to transform system-wide suicide prevention care. Many healthcare systems, including Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, have adopted Zero Suicide.
Studies have shown reductions in suicide rates up to 75%. Coaches for the Kids Foundation funding will implement the UK Zero Suicide Academy, creating a solid support system for staff and patients. Education will begin in the late Spring of 2022 for all clinical and non-clinical staff at Kentucky Children’s Hospital.
