Boston Children's is actively involved in conducting research into the causes and best treatments for childhood injury. Currently, we are:

  • examining how best to care for children with a ruptured spleen

  • collaborating with other hospitals to determine the long-term problems children face after suffering a broken pelvis

  • identifying children and families who are at risk for developing emotional problems or post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSS) after injury

  • identifying which blood tests and x-rays are necessary during emergency care to ensure patient safety and maximize emergency department efficiency

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.”
