Our passion is serving children and their families. We understand the great privilege a parent entrusts in us to deliver the right care at the right time, in a safe and affordable way.

We have worked to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in pediatric medicine for more than two decades. What's more, these efforts have significantly expanded in recent years to include initiatives for creating a better, more equitable experience for patients, their families and all employees.

Pediatricians and nurse practitioners at Children’s National primary care practices provide care for everyday conditions children face, such as a cough, fever, rash or a minor injury. For more complex needs such as care of diabetes, neurologic disorders, heart disease or gastroenterology, our health system brings together hundreds of experts across all fields of medicine. Our compassion, experience, resources and the latest technologies bring the best care to your child.
