At Boston Children's Hospital, our vision is to advance pediatric care worldwide. Our four-part mission is to:
We were established as a hospital for poor urban children in 1869, and have grown from 20 beds to our current 397 beds.
For 140 years, we have been delivering on our vision of advancing pediatric care with an impressive list of Historical Milestones, from the first successful remission of leukemia in 1947 to our more recent successful correction of a heart defect in a fetus.
We are New England's regional referral pediatric center and a safety net hospital for the most critically ill children and those from low-income families. We partner with the community to address the most pressing health care needs in surrounding neighborhoods. The hospital trains more pediatricians and has the largest research program of any other pediatric hospital. As a not-for-profit, all of the hospital's resources go toward supporting these goals.

The leading source of research and discovery
Enhance the health and well-being of children and families in our community
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
