About the Organization

For the 10th consecutive year Cincinnati Children’s ranks among the top 3 pediatric hospitals in the nation, according to U.S. News & World ReportThis sustained recognition of our continued excellence makes us grateful and proud.

The driving force behind this decade-long achievement is your passion, talent, dedication and commitment to putting kids first.

As we often say, Cincinnati Children’s is not a number. It is a collection of interconnected contributions and achievements that we deliver every year. And so, as we wrap FY20, we should also celebrate that this year we have:

  • Achieved excellent results from our triennial Joint Commission re-certification survey, which included many instances of praise for best practices across all three parts of the survey:  hospital, mental health, and home care.
  • Received a multimillion-dollar grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) to maintain our status as one of only nine federally funded centers to evaluate vaccines and treatments for infectious diseases.
  • Received a $36 million gift (the institution’s largest ever) from the Convalescent Hospital for Children to improve mental health care for children and teens. This money will go toward building a new inpatient facility at College Hill and expanding mental health programs.
  • Rolled out our new Mobile Care Center to deliver pediatric subspecialty services to local and regional communities.
  • Assembled and activated COVID-19 response and recovery teams who continue to nimbly address the needs and concerns of patients, families and staff. In response to the pandemic, we accelerated many projects that were already in development, such as swiftly adapting our laboratory services to accommodate COVID-19 testing and expanding TeleHealth to meet the changing needs of care for our community.
  • Launched the Food Rescue Program to divert unserved meals from Cincinnati Children’s campuses to children and families in need.
  • Completed Safer Together training for all employees which has provided a critical framework for our safety culture during the COVID-19 response and now recovery.

And, this is just a sampling of our accomplishments. It’s been an extraordinary year, and an extraordinary decade of recognized excellence.

We are pursuing our potential together so that all kids can pursue theirs!
