Serving as the pediatric arm of Johns Hopkins, the Children’s Center brings collaborative multidisciplinary might and expertise to bear in treating every child that crosses its threshold. Founded in 1912, the Johns Hopkins Children's Center offers one of the most comprehensive pediatric medical programs in the country. In addition to its 92,000 patient visits, there are in excess of 65,000 patient visits to the Children’s Center’s 30 pediatric subsidiaries annually.
Johns Hopkins Children Center is consistently ranked among the top children’s hospitals in the nation by U.S.News & World Report. As Maryland’s largest children’s hospital and the only state-designated Trauma Service and Burn Unit for pediatric patients, care is provided in The Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center building which opened in 2012. It has recognized Centers of Excellence in dozens of pediatric subspecialties, including allergy, cardiology, cystic fibrosis, gastroenterology, nephrology, neurology, neurosurgery, oncology, pulmonary, and transplant.
As the birthplace of academic pediatrics in the United States more than a century ago, the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center has been leading the innovations, discoveries and collaboration that provide hope of the promise of medicine for children. Their goal is to fulfill one of the most basic tenets of medicine: to treat the child with the disease, not the disease in the child. This research is achievable through generous monetary donations.
