About Us

Children's National Hospital has ranked as one of the top 10 pediatric hospitals in the nation – with the #1 ranked neonatology program – by U.S. News & World Report for the fifth year in a row. What's more, we ranked in all 10 specialties, with top 10 honors in neurology and neurosurgery, cancer, nephrology, orthopedics, pulmonology and lung surgery, and diabetes and endocrinology. This recognition of our commitment to bringing health and well-being to all children continues to inspire our teams.

As home to the Children’s National Research Institute and the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation, Children’s National receives more than 70% of its research funding from federal agencies, including 60% from the National Institutes of Health. 

In 2019, the HSC Health Care System became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Children's National. It has a health plan, pediatric specialty hospital, home health agency, rehabilitative therapy centers and parent foundation that combine to serve people with complex health care needs and eliminate barriers to health services.

We’re recognized as committed advocates for children on local, state and federal health policy. In fact, we’re often the first at the table when pediatric healthcare legislation is being developed.
