Research & innovation campus Rare disease and primary care building

More than 20,000 children and adolescents live in the Ward 4 neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Our new primary and specialty care location includes comprehensive pediatric primary care to conveniently serve this community, as well as the clinical services of our Rare Disease Institute, which treats children with genetic and metabolic diseases.

The opening of this new outpatient care location is part of an overall strategic effort by Children’s National Hospital to increase access and convenience for patients by locating pediatric primary and specialty services in community locations. Doing this also allows us to better respond to needs that may be specific to the surrounding community.
