Manage Your Child's Care Online
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.
Whether your child is seeing a Children’s National Health System specialist or one of our primary care doctors, you can manage your child’s health information and more through our online patient portals. Parents can choose to manage either their child’s specialty or primary care.
