Horst and Luisa Ferrero established the Sebastian Ferrero Foundation after their 3-year-old son Sebastian Ferrero died at Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Florida, as a result of a medication overdose followed by a series of preventable medical errors. The foundation was established to serve as a catalyst for profound change in the way hospitals and health-care professionals care for children and their families. The mission of the Sebastian Ferrero Foundation is to advocate and fund-raise for a full-service, state-of-the-art children’s hospital in Gainesville, Florida, while promoting excellence in patient safety and ensuring that all families are treated with compassion, courtesy and dignity.
The Sebastian Ferrero Foundation, the University of Florida and Shands Hospital have created a shared vision to be the leading provider of pediatric health and wellness services in the state of Florida and a national leader in pediatric research, innovation and education.
