What patients and families need to know
Where We Work
- Children’s National Hospital (Main Hospital) is the main training site for our residency program. Most of our inpatient and intensive care months are here as well as our emergency medicine time. Children’s National has more than 360,000 visits each year by patients who come from throughout the city, region, nation and world. Children’s is the largest provider of pediatric care in the District of Columbia and serves as an advocate for all children, providing more than $50 million in uncompensated care. We also serve as the regional referral center for pediatric emergency, trauma, cancer, cardiac and critical care, as well as neonatology, orthopaedic surgery, neurology and neurosurgery. Rest assured that at this tertiary care site, you will see it all!
- Holy Cross Hospital is a community hospital in Silver Spring, Md., where residents are exposed to well nursery care during their first year. Holy Cross Hospital is one of the largest hospitals in Maryland. It is located just north of Washington, D.C., and near the Capital Beltway. It is accessible by Metro/shuttle. The hospital primarily serves residents of the state’s two largest jurisdictions, Montgomery and Prince George’s counties. During internship year, our residents spend one month in the newborn nursery at Holy Cross Hospital, learning the basics of newborn care. Practicing pediatrics at Holy Cross Hospital is a fantastic opportunity that rounds out our training experience.
- George Washington University Hospital is a large academic hospital located in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood of the District. Residents rotate through the NICU and attend deliveries here. It is an advanced facility equipped to treat premature infants and term newborns, with care for high-risk neonates including: noninvasive nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), mechanical ventilation, high frequency oscillation and nitric oxide inhalation therapy. Interns rotating here develop a great knowledge base in neonatal medicine.
- Children’s National Specialty Care Locations are spread throughout the Washington, D.C., metropolitan region, offering subspecialty care to those who live near and far. While residents spend most of their time on the main campus, they have the opportunities during many rotations to work in these facilities.
- Children’s National Primary Care Practices and Private Primary Care Practices are the locations for our resident continuity clinics and serve as medical homes for patients in our surrounding communities. These sites vary a bit in terms of patient population and each site has a lot to offer. New interns are matched with continuity sites based on location and interest prior to beginning residency.
