Commitment to Community

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

20 years ago we recognized the importance of caring for our community. So much so that this became the fourth pillar in our hospital’s mission. Today, Boston Children's is the leading provider of health care to low-income children in Massachusetts. Approximately 41% percent of our patients have coverage through public insurance. We are a safety net provider, treating all pediatric patients from Massachusetts regardless of their family's ability to pay. Boston Children's also serves as the community hospital for our local community and is the largest provider (inpatient and outpatient) for our city's children.

From our Community Asthma Initiative to our Children’s Hospital Neighborhood Partnerships (CHNP), we strive to ensure that Boston’s children receive the care they need, regardless of their income levels.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
