A Legacy of Compassion

When Brian Wildman first joined Cincinnati Children’s employee family 22 years ago, he knew right away that it would be more than just a job.

Working in finance as a business director for Patient Services, Wildman sees firsthand how we provide the best possible care for kids and families—even those who struggle to afford it. It’s that culture of compassion that inspires him to give back.

Recognizing how the arts enrich our community, Wildman volunteers as a director and singer for our Cincinnati Children’s Choral Collective. And every year, he supports care and research initiatives by joining our biggest community fundraiser, Cincinnati Walks for Kids.

“I feel so strongly about the work we do,” Wildman says. “Giving back makes me feel even more tied to our mission.”

Having lost his brother to adrenal cancer, Wildman understands deeply the importance of that mission: to transform the delivery of care through fully integrated, globally recognized research, education and innovation.

And, knowing that giving back helps translate to cures for the future, Wildman decided to do more to support the institution that changed his career—and life—for the better. He recently updated his estate plans and included Cincinnati Children’s in his will, designating his future gift to the area of greatest need.

“We don’t know what the future holds,” Wildman says. “So I want my gift to go where it’s needed most.”

We’re so grateful for the many families and employees who wish to support the medical center through a planned gift. Friends like Brian Wildman enable us to provide the best possible care for kids in our community and beyond.
