People and their stories are the heart and soul of Seattle Children's Hospital.
The Children's Story Project is an open invitation to "donate" your personal story about Seattle Children's. It began as part of The Campaign for Children's – Fulfilling the Promise in 2007, which is now complete. Today the Story Project is an opportunity to transform stories into vehicles of hope while honoring those who have contributed to our success. Submitted stories may be used in a number of publications, both print and online, to foster support for Children’s and spread the word about the lifesaving work being done here every day.
Seattle Children’s Hospital specializes in meeting the unique physical, emotional and developmental needs of children from infancy through young adulthood. For more than 100 years, we have been dedicated to providing top-quality care to every child in our region who needs us, regardless of the family’s ability to pay.
Through the collaboration of physicians in nearly 60 pediatric subspecialties, we provide inpatient, outpatient, diagnostic, surgical, rehabilitative, behavioral, emergency and outreach services.
Seattle Children’s is consistently ranked among the nation’s best children’s hospitals by U.S. News & World Report magazine. Thanks to our nursing excellence, we received Magnet status in 2008 – an honor bestowed on less than 4% of all hospitals in the United States.
We are also the primary teaching, clinical and research site for the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Washington School of Medicine, which is ranked one of the top 10 pediatrics programs in the country by U.S. News & World Report.
