Children's National Medical Center is the preeminent pediatric healthcare facility in the metropolitan Washington, DC region. The 303-bed facility admitted more than 14,000 patients and provided 370,000 outpatient visits in 2011. Patients and families travel locally, nationally, and internationally to receive care from pediatric specialists, making the institution a truly diverse setting for services, education and training. In addition to providing world-class specialty care, Children’s National serves as the medical safety net for the children of the region. Through 37 locations, including six community-based health centers in the District of Columbia, seven regional outpatient facilities in Maryland and Virginia, and a Mobile Health Program, Children’s National brings health care directly into the communities of the most vulnerable children and families in the region. For the fourth consecutive year, Children’s National was selected by the Leapfrog Group for its Patient Safety’s Top Hospitals List - one of only seven children’s hospitals granted this honor. Children’s National earned the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet® designation; just 6% of all U.S. hospitals achieve this elite recognition, the highest for nursing excellence. U.S. News & World Report again named Children’s National as one of the nation’s best pediatric hospitals, ranking among the top tier in all ten categories measured. For more information, visit
