Partnering with Our Communities to Promote Child Health

Cincinnati Children’s has a long tradition of community involvement. From employee volunteer efforts to partnership investments with other nonprofits, we are deeply committed to leading, collaborating and advocating to measurably improve the health of local children and reduce disparities in targeted populations. We are committed to addressing significant health needs that may go beyond our role as Greater Cincinnati’s leading pediatric healthcare provider. We strive to reach outside our walls to improve healthcare outcomes for all children in the region.

We’re Here for You

We facilitate a number of initiatives and activities with community groups, nonprofits, schools and business leaders to provide a healthier place for children to grow and thrive, here and around the world.
