In addition, our state-of-the art technology and medical equipment is sized to fit children from birth to age 21.

Our internationally-recognized team of pediatric physicians cares for more than 219,000 patients each year. This multidisciplinary team coordinates resources to ensure that patients are treated in a unique, family-centered care environment. The team includes pediatric specialists in more than 45 specialties, many of whom serve on the faculty of the George Washington University School of Medicine.
