Children’s National is in the process of opening MyChildrensNationalPortal, a new portal scheduled to open on June 22. In preparation for the new portal, our current portal (SCI) will be closed as of May 29. Please dial -888-884-BEAR (2327) to make an appointment. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause while we upgrade our portal capabilities.
