Seattle Children's Hospital is both a community hospital for greater Seattle and the pediatric referral center for the Northwest providing excellent pediatric care to meet the medical, surgical and developmental needs of children in the WWAMI region. Serving as the main clinical training site for pediatric residents, this 250-bed hospital is conveniently located one and one-half miles from the University of Washington campus in an attractive, residential neighborhood of Seattle. The staff consists of University faculty and Seattle Children's full-time physicians, as well as private practicing physicians from the Seattle area.
As one of the top five pediatric research centers in the nation, we bring together the best minds in pediatric research to set new standards of pediatric care and find new cures for childhood diseases. Our goal is that every patient at Seattle Children’s has the opportunity to participate in, or benefit from, our groundbreaking research.
Our nine interdisciplinary centers address areas central to pediatric health and use an “open lab” format to foster a rich collaborative environment. Investigators draw from different departments, divisions and disciplines to find new cures for childhood diseases more quickly.
