World-Class Clinical Care
Seattle Childrenâ€™s Hospital specializes in meeting the unique physical, emotional and developmental needs of children from infancy through young adulthood. For more than 100 years, we have been dedicated to providing top-quality care to every child in our region who needs us, regardless of the familyâ€™s ability to pay.
Through the collaboration of physicians in nearly 60 pediatric subspecialties, we provide inpatient, outpatient, diagnostic, surgical, rehabilitative, behavioral, emergency and outreach services.
Seattle Childrenâ€™s is consistently ranked among the nationâ€™s best childrenâ€™s hospitals by U.S. News & World Report magazine. Thanks to our nursing excellence, we received Magnet status in 2008 â€” an honor bestowed on less than 4% of all hospitals in the United States.
We are also the primary teaching, clinical and research site for the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Washington School of Medicine, which is ranked one of the top 10 pediatrics programs in the country by U.S. News & World Report.
At the forefront of pediatric medical research, Seattle Childrenâ€™s Research Institute has nine major centers, and is internationally recognized forÂ its work in cancer, genetics, immunology, pathology, infectious disease, injury prevention and bioethics. As of 2009, it is among the top five pediatric medical research centers in terms of National Institutes of Health grant funding.
In its quest to cure childhood disease, the research institute brings discoveries to the bedside in partnership with Seattle Childrenâ€™s Hospital and Seattle Childrenâ€™s Hospital Foundation.
