by Boston Children's Hospital


At Boston Children's Hospital, our goal is simple: to provide the very best care until every child is well. Gifts to The Children's Fund go immediately to where support is needed most - to help sick children and move the needle for faster cures and innovative treatments for disease, illness, injury, and trauma incidents.

Pediatric care is different than adult care. While children don't need care as often as adults, when they do, it is more complicated and costly. On average, children are twice as sick as adults when hospitalized requiring more nurses, highly specialized equipment and more pharmacists to reformulate medication.


Boston Children's Hospital never stops looking for ways to make patient care safer, smarter and more personal. We've developed a device that reduces the risk of infection, put 3-D printing to work in the operating room, and used the internet to improve care of chronic illness. These innovations come from constantly reexamining how we care for patients, interact with families, and understand disease.

Long-Term Impact

At Boston Children's Hospital, our goal is simple: to provide the very best care until every child is well. Boston Children's ranks first in more specialties than any other pediatric hospital. This year - we continue to be ranked as the top children's hospital in the country by U.S. News & World Report. Boston Children's ranks #1 in seven of the ten specialties ranked by the report.
