In 1883, Cincinnati Children’s story humbly began when three compassionate women converted a house into a small hospital. Over the years, that growing hospital became home to many firsts and has made medical history many times. Today we stand as one of the world’s premier children’s hospitals. We did it with groundbreaking research and relentless innovation—and always with the kind of compassionate care on which we were founded.
As we build upon our legacy, it’s important to understand where we’ve been, what we’ve overcome and what we’ve accomplished so that Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center will be the leader in improving child health.
Between now and our 150th birthday in 2033, we will honor our history and pursue an even greater future by elevating and accelerating our focus on Care, Cure, Community and Culture. In doing so, we will pursue our potential together, so all kids can pursue theirs.
