Friends,

For the first time ever, Cincinnati Children’s climbed to the #2 spot in the country in U.S. News & World Report’s 2018–19 ranking of the nation’s best children’s hospitals! We couldn’t have achieved this without our dedicated caregivers, visionary researchers—and donors like you!

You’re such an important member of our care team. THANK YOU!

At Cincinnati Children’s, our pioneering research drives our world-class care. And our amazing science and innovations make us both a premier community hospital and a top destination for care for families across the United States.

Over the past decade, we’ve seen the demand for our services continue to grow. Today, we’re seeing some of the sickest, most medically complex kids. These children— and their families—need specialized care. And they need a care environment that supports them during what is one of the most challenging times of their lives.

That’s why we are embarking on our largest clinical expansion ever.

In this issue of For the Children, you’ll learn more about how we are working to transform the way families experience care at Cincinnati Children’s — from emergency care to our intensive care units to life-saving bone marrow treatments. We want to be ready today—and for decades to come — to provide the best care for our most critically ill patients.

Your support makes this, and so much more, possible. Together, we’re creating better futures for children—here in our community and beyond.

Thanks for your ongoing partnership,

Michael
