More Than a Hospital
Children’s National Health System’s specialists are experts in caring for kids, and it’s all we do.
With locations in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia, we take a team approach to caring for children in their communities.
The team includes our leadership and a wide range of facilities and specialists, from pediatricians to pediatric subspecialists, ensuring that our patients’ care is integrated among all team members.

Experts in Care
In the United States, about 500,000 babies are born prematurely each year, with about 2 percent of them born at less than 32 weeks gestation. Up to 90 percent of these children survive, but they often suffer a number of abnormalities, some of which can contribute to white matter injury. No treatment currently exists to improve function in these infants after injury occurs, but researchers at Children's National may be close.

Our team of sarcoma specialists has the expertise to improve outcomes for young patients with these tumors. We have advanced imaging equipment available for diagnosis, staging, treatment, and follow-up for all bone and soft tissue sarcomas in children, adolescents, and young adults. Additionally, our sarcoma program is one of the few in the United States where patients can see a pediatric oncologist, orthopaedic oncologist, biologist, and physical therapist in one truly comprehensive visit.
