Ohio Pediatric Excellence

Caring for Those in Need

Ohio has a clear competitive advantage in pediatrics through dedicated hospitals and research institutions. Ohio’s children’s hospitals lead the country in quality of care and development of ground-breaking research and technology that save children’s lives while also growing the economy. It is the only state in the nation with a flagship children’s hospital within two hours’ drive of every child, including children in the most rural areas of the state. Together, these hospitals serve children from all 88 Ohio counties, all 50 states, and dozens of foreign countries.
