The goal of the University of Maryland Children's Hospital is to assure every child in Maryland the very best medical care available in an environment dedicated to children and their families, with services fully integrated to meet individual needs.

As the outstanding regional and community referral resource for the primary, specialty and critical care of infants and children, we commit to provide:

  • Inpatient care for our sickest children and support for their families, including complete subspecialty and emergency services.
  • Strong community service, emphasizing preventive care, especially among at-risk populations.
  • Comprehensive clinical and innovative educational experiences for our students and residents — many of them Maryland's future pediatricians.
  • An emphasis on laboratory and clinical investigations to ensure the leadership role we've established in children's health care research.
