For more than 145 years, Boston Children’s Hospital (Children’s) has delivered the highest quality healthcare for children. Founded as a 20-bed hospital for poor urban children in 1869, Children’s is now a 400-bed academic medical center that sets the bar for pediatric care, educates tomorrow’s leaders in child health, enhances the health and wellbeing of children and families in the local community, and leads in research and discovery. The hospital’s impressive list of medical advances ranges from the first successful remission of leukemia (in 1947) to groundbreaking fetal heart surgery.
