At Children's National, we treat the whole child, paying special attention to both their physical and emotional needs.  Here are some of the particular treatments we use to care for our patients.

Blood Transfusion

More than 2,700 patients receive blood transfusions each year at Children’s National Health System’s hospital and Regional Outpatient Centers, including approximately 7,500 red blood cell, 2,000 plasma, 3,000 platelets, and 900 cryoprecipitate units.
