Access to a Full Range of Care

At Children’s National Health System, we take a team approach to care where all specialties and departments are integrated to offer the best care overall. No matter what level patients enter Children’s National, each will experience the same access to a full range of care.

Experts Working Together

Our physicians work together in a collaborative way to help patients achieve the best possible outcome they can have. This collaborative nature ensures that we are advocating for each child and determine the best treatment plan.

Complex Care

The Complex Care Program at Children’s National has been providing a medical home for children and youth with special healthcare needs since 2002. A medical home is defined as family-centered, coordinated, compassionate, comprehensive, and able to provide continuous care for children with special healthcare needs.

Located in the Children's Health Center, our integrated model allows us to provide primary care and consultative services to children with complex conditions. Complex Care serves as a point of contact for families and primary care providers of children with special needs.

Support Services

Families play a major role in the team providing your child’s care. That’s why we have several services for families to help make the navigation of our hospital system easier for you.
