Our Mission

We believe all children have unique needs and should grow up without illness or injury. With the support of the community and through our spirit of inquiry, we will prevent, treat and eliminate pediatric disease.

Our Vision

We will be the best children’s hospital.

Our founding promise is to care for every child in our region, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. We aspire to:

  • Provide the safest, most effective care possible.
  • Control and reduce the cost of providing care.
  • Find cures and educate clinicians and researchers.
  • Grow responsibly and provide access to every child who needs us.
