Why Choose Us

Choosing a hospital for your child can be a difficult decision. Should you consider expertise, volume of similar patient conditions, treatment plans, coordinated care, family resources, advocacy groups, or location?

We believe that when your child needs a hospital, everything matters.

In 2015, Nationwide Children’s Hospital was, once again, named to the Honor Roll of US News and World Report’s “Best Children’s Hospitals.” With nearly 11,000 employees, we are the largest children’s hospital in America. And, according to the Children’s Hospital Association, Nationwide Children’s is the #1 provider of pediatric surgery in the country.

Our focus on family-centered care ensures that parental and caregiver needs are taken into account. We know that you are part of your child’s healthcare team and we value the perspective you bring to their treatment plan. We believe the patient’s family is our partner in care.

Nationwide Children’s is also proud to staff the Columbus Blue Jackets Foundation Family Resource Center, designed to help support patients and families during their inpatient or outpatient stays. With everything from free haircuts to cell phone charging and massage; the Resource Center can provide respite during tough times.

As an international leader in pediatric research, science is thriving at Nationwide Children’s research centers! Our behavioral, basic and clinician scientists are redefining pediatric health care with best outcomes for every child in mind. We are ranked in the top 10 for National Institutes of Health funding among free-standing children’s hospitals and we work hard to improve the health and quality of life for children worldwide.

Conveniently and centrally-located, our main campus is just 8 miles from Columbus International Airport and with numerous Close To Home℠ Centers and Urgent Care facilities, there are 65+ locations to serve many patient needs.
