Hospital's videos
Welcome to Children’s National Health System, home to more than 500 specialists, 1,300 nurses, and thousands of care team members and support staff. We are dedicated to caring for children and teens with injuries, illnesses, and complex medical needs. We also treat some adults with chronic, childhood conditions.

Children’s National has earned top ranking among children’s hospitals in the country from U.S.News & World Report. This recognition highlights our commitment to delivering world-class care. Doctors refer patients to us from the region, across the nation, and around the world. Parents choose us for our expertise, track record, and focus on patient and family-centered care.

We want you and your child to have a safe and comfortable experience while you are here. We all know that bringing a child to the hospital can be stressful. If at any time you have questions or concerns, please ask a doctor, nurse, social worker, or staff member for assistance. We all work as a team and can help you find answers.

Our patient and family-centered approach means that we see you as an important member of your child’s care team. This guide will help you understand how to work with us. We take our responsibilities to you seriously, and ask that you also take your role seriously as an informed partner in caring for your child.

Please take a few minutes to understand what Children’s National has to offer. We are confident that you will find a dedicated team of medical and support caregivers who will provide you and your child the best care possible in a safe environment.
