Since 1870, Children’s National Medical Center has provided hope to sick children and their families throughout the Washington, DC, region. The caliber of medical expertise we offer is often unparalleled, and so, families from more than 30 countries around the world seek care for their children here.

We are an internationally recognized leader in pediatric health. Children’s National not only provides world-class clinical care, but is an international leader in research, with several floors of onsite research facilities including the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation. Research at Children's National CRI allows for the translation of science into clinical medicine, from the scientific bench to the child’s bedside.

Our faculty members are among the best in the world.
Children’s National is consistently listed as one of America’s best pediatric institutions by U.S.News & World Report .

We not only treat the child, we care for the whole family.
We understand that parents want the best possible care for their children. The International Program assists families with every personal detail, from travel arrangements and necessary documentation to culturally sensitive accommodations during your time in Washington, DC.

Our location in Washington, DC, eases the difficulty of international travel for our families.
Located in the heart of the nation's capital, Children’s National has the unique advantage of resources, such as access to embassies and three major airports, to welcome international travelers. We contact embassies, provide interpreters, and coordinate all medical appointments to simplify your stay.
