My Biography & Research


Hilary Flint, DO, MEd, is a board-certified pediatrician who specializes in palliative medicine, pain and symptom management as well as care for medically fragile children. Originally from Mississippi, Dr. Flint completed a pediatric residency at the University of Mississippi Medical Center-Blair Batson Children’s Hospital. After developing an interest in pediatric palliative medicine, Dr. Flint pursued a fellowship in hospice and palliative medicine at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Dr. Flint moved to Cincinnati after completing her fellowship and joined the Pediatric Palliative and Comfort Care Team (PACT) at Cincinnati Children’s where she focuses on enhancing the quality of life for children with life-threatening conditions. In keeping with her interest in caring for children with medically complex disease, Dr. Flint also joined the Center for Infants and Children with Special Needs, now the Complex Care Center, where she practices family-centered, comprehensive care.

Dr. Flint is passionate about caring for children who are suffering from complex or life-threatening conditions. She, along with an interdisciplinary team, accomplishes this by assessing and treating the unique physical, psychosocial, and spiritual needs of patients and families under her care.
