Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Through fundraising and partnerships, the Children's Hospital Foundation helps the experts of Children's National develop therapies, find cures, and improve children's health in our region, across the nation, and around the world. The vision of Children's National Health System is to improve the health of children in the Washington area, across the country, and around the world.

Children's National Medical Center advances its mission through world-class care, advocacy to improve children's lives, cutting-edge research to develop new therapies and seek cures for childhood diseases, and education, including training the next generation of pediatricians. We are focused on outcomes, innovative therapies, safety, and exceptional service for every family.

Children's National Medical Center is ranked as one of the best children's hospitals in all 10 areas rated by U.S. News & World Report -- cancer, cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and GI surgery, neonatology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, orthopaedics, pulmonology, and urology. In 2015, it was named to the U.S. News Honor Roll of children's hospitals, ranking in the top 10 nationally.

In the area of research, Children's National is a top 6 recipient of funding from the National Institutes of Health. We have more than 300 ongoing research projects in a full range of pediatric specialties.

Children's internationally recognized team of pediatric health care professionals care for more than 450,00 patient visits each year, including more than 100,000 in the emergency department. Serving as an advocate for all children, Children's is the largest non-governmental provider of pediatric care in the District of Columbia, providing $82 million in uncompensated care. In addition, Children's serves as the regional referral center for pediatric emergency, trauma, cancer, cardiac and critical care as well as neonatology, orthopaedic surgery, neurology, and neurosurgery.

Children's National Medical Center is taking steps to provide the best possible care, in a safe and welcoming environment, for every family who enters our doors. That includes attracting some of the nation's best physicians and nurses, offering state-of-the-art facilities, developing innovative therapies, and conducting cutting-edge research. While its mission remains firmly grounded in serving the children of the Washington area, its national rankings and reputation demonstrate significant growth and progress since it opened in 1870.

  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
