Cincinnati Children’s 2020 strategic plan commits us to “help Cincinnati’s kids to be the healthiest in the nation through strong community partnerships.”

Some of our most important connections are with children and families in our local communities, including those who may never need our medical care but do need our support.

In this community benefit report for 2015, you will learn about a few of the many ways we are collaborating with others to improve the health, well-being and quality of life of local children. Many of our collective efforts are designed to keep kids healthy and out of the hospital, and to give them the best chance at achieving their full potential.

We know that working in partnership with other not-for-profit organizations and the local community is a key to making a difference in children’s lives. Together we can accomplish so much more than any of us can do alone. While some of our partnerships have been in place for years, we continually look for better ways to work together and to measure our success. And we continue to build new strategic partnerships to bring fresh thinking and novel approaches to the work.

At Cincinnati Children’s, one our core beliefs is the belief in each other − our colleagues, our partners and most of all, our patients and families. We have been serving the Greater Cincinnati community since 1883. Today, we pledge our continuing support and thank all who work with us to make this possible. We are changing the outcome together.
