Community

Liberty Campus opens for patient care on August 11, at the intersection of I-75 and Ohio State Route 129. The 230,000 sq. ft. facility is designed with patient and family input, featuring interactive elements in waiting areas, warm colors and natural light. It boasts 12 short-stay beds, an Emergency Department, sub-specialty clinic space and eight operating rooms. On that same day, Surgical Services closes at Mason Campus and moves to Liberty Campus.

When services are close to home kids can have better access to care.

Cure

A rotavirus vaccine developed and tested by two Cincinnati Children’s researchers — Richard Ward, PhD, and David Bernstein, MD, MA — is approved for use in the first of more than 100 countries. Rotavirus is the leading cause of diarrhea in children, and diarrhea is the leading cause of global child mortality. Rotavirus vaccines save tens of thousands of lives annually. With innovation and international resolve, kids can beat global health disparities.
