Community Health and Benefit
Caring for Our Community
At Seattle Children’s, we’re always thinking of the health and well-being of every child, teen and family in the community. We reach beyond our hospital every day to provide programs and services to make children, teens and families safer and healthier where they live. Our commitment to caring for the community is our passion, our duty and our privilege.
