Read about what makes Cincinnati Children's different.We know kids. Because we treat kids.

We’re the best at what we do, and that happens to be treating children. Our pediatric professionals have trained specifically to work with children – and most have devoted their entire careers to exclusively caring for kids. So whether your child has a rare disease or a common cold, we offer the best treatment and expertise around.

  • Child Life Department
    We have an entire team dedicated to improving your child’s experience. Whether you’re here for 20 minutes or 20 days, our Child Life professionals know how to make what’s happening less scary through positive play and distraction.
  • Laboratory and Testing Services
    Our phlebotomists work exclusively with children, so they have well-honed skills for fewer repeat sticks, even in the youngest patients. Plus, our pediatric testing equipment requires lower volume samples for testing, which results in quicker collection.
  • Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging
    We are the only pediatric radiology experts in the area, and we have the most advanced technology geared toward children. Our radiologists are national leaders minimizing radiation doses to children and experts at reading small X-rays.

We share our ideas, our discoveries, our advancements.

We recognize and support your family’s critical role in the healing experience, so we involve you in decisions to provide the best possible outcomes for your child. We will also listen to you, collaborate with you, and transparently share our results to provide a better experience and healthcare value.
