About Seattle Care Children's Network

In order to best serve our patients in this environment of healthcare reform, community providers and Seattle Children's have developed a clinically integrated network called the Seattle Children’s Care Network (SCCN). The purpose of the SCCN is to develop clinical initiatives designed to improve the quality of healthcare delivered to children in our community and reduce costs associated with care.

Our mission is to enhance the health and well-being of children in our community across the continuum of care through excellence in primary care, inpatient and specialty services, and in world-class clinical research.
