Join the Chester Hunt Fan Club

There are people in this world who are destined to do special things with their lives. They fly into space, they develop the latest inventions, and they change our planet for the better. Chester Hunt is one of those people – and we’re blessed to have him here at Nationwide Children’s as a nurse in our Intensive Care Unit (ICU). He cares for some of our most sick and injured children.

There is just something magical and calming when you meet Chester. His voice, his gentle disposition, his clinical confidence. If you have a child in intensive care, Chester is someone you want to have on your team. And Chester is amazing with his patients, whether helping them through a tough treatment or singing to them, his healing is a gift.

OK – Chester may not look like your typical Pediatric ICU nurse. He chose pediatric nursing because he was inspired by children’s resolve. He loves seeing children beat the odds and reach their fullest potential. It’s all about creating a positive future that motivates Chester. And he’s done an amazing job…during his almost 25 years of service here at Nationwide Children’s he’s saved the lives of thousands of children.

Now, you know why I’m part of the Chester Fan club, along with his co-workers, his patients, their families and pretty much everyone who meets him. Check out Chester in our holiday commercial or see more of his story below. Be sure to write and let me know if Chester helped care for your child. Join the fan club!

    Chester has taken care of my daughter, Ally Bellamy, a few times during her multiple ICU stays. He certainly makes a difference! I knew it was okay to go get a coffee or step out for a small break as he was on the balk and nothing would happen to my princess while he was there. People like him make the difference at Nationwide Children’s…….the place we are so thankful for.

    My grandaughter, Brenlee, was at Children’s Hospital 4 yrs ago. She has had several major heart surgeries since then. Our family wants to thank all of the staff at Children’s for the AWESOME treatment she received. The support that you gave my daughter, Jessica was truly cherished as well. Brenlee celebrated her 4th birthday and was running around like any 4 year old. Thank you for helping give her that chance!

    Chester! Where do I start? We always loved having him as our son, Jason’s nurse whil he was in the PICU. Chester is an excellent nurse, the best! He is very professional. His main priority is the child that he is caring for. We knew if we had Chester, Jason would have the best care available in the unit! THANK YOU CHESTER!

    Chester took care of my son Andrew in the PICU. Chester has a presence about him that made me a little nervous, until the first night he took care of Andrew. I woke up in the middle of the night to hear him singing to Andrew. His care and attention that he shows to his patients is outstanding. I knew that when Chester was taking care of Andrew, that we both were going to have a good night.
