Seattle Children's Hospital

Seattle Children's Hospital is both a community hospital for greater Seattle and the pediatric referral center for the Northwest of the United States, providing specialty care to patients in the WWAMI region (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho). 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.

 

University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC) – Center on Human Development and Disability (CHDD)

UWMC is a 450-bed teaching and research hospital offering comprehensive care including complete medical, surgical, ob-gyn, and psychiatric services and is rated as one of the top-10 hospitals in the U.S. Patients are referred from the UW Medicine sites and from community practitioners from the Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho (WWAMI) region.

More than 600 University of Washington faculty and staff members, as well as numerous doctoral and post-doctoral students, provide clinical services, interdisciplinary clinical and research training, and technical assistance and outreach training to community practitioners and community agencies. CHDD scientists and clinicians also conduct basic and translational research to generate new knowledge and disseminate information widely.

 

Seattle Children's Research Institute (SCRI)

As one of the nation's top five pediatric research centers, Seattle Children's Research Institute is dedicated to making breakthrough discoveries that help prevent, treat and cure childhood disease. SCRI has more than 350 investigators researching hundreds of diseases and disorders, and nearly $53 million in federal research funding for the 2010 fiscal year. The research institute is organized into nine centers, each one specializing in areas that include immunotherapy, tissue and immune transplantation, outcomes research, clinical and translational research, and child health and behavior. Researchers in the centers work in close collaboration with one another, their colleagues at partner institutions including the University of Washington and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and with our health care providers at Seattle Children's Hospital. This collaboration is one of our key strengths, allowing our faculty to draw on a variety of disciplines and techniques as they pursue solutions to some of medicines most complex problems.
