Children’s National Hospital has created a one-of-a-kind research and innovation hub that drives discoveries that save and improve the lives of children.

On a nearly 12-acre portion of the former, historic Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Northwest Washington, D.C., Children’s National has combined its strengths with those of public and private partners, including industry, universities, federal agencies, start-up companies and academic medical centers. Together, we have created an ecosystem that nurtures innovation from discovery to commercialization.

How You Can Help

Philanthropy changes lives. This ambitious endeavor to improve children’s health requires the commitment of many partnerships. This includes city and corporate leaders and those willing to invest in the future we envision together.

To learn more about how you, your company or your foundation can get involved, please contact Julie Butler, Vice President, Corporate and Community Giving at (301) 565-8508.
