Healthcare roll therapy with 20 magnets

Best Children's Hospitals — U.S. News Honor Roll 2019-20 You want the best for your family — and so do we. Our goal at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) has always been to provide children with the highest quality and most advanced care, delivered with compassion, integrity and respect. 

We know that every single member of our team, both those you meet during your child’s care and those who work behind the scenes, has an impact on your experience. That is why every CHOP employee puts our patients and families first in everything we do.

World-class Care

Our physicians are internationally-recognized experts in every pediatric specialty, including cancer, cardiac care, fetal medicine, orthopaedics, neonatology, diabetes, gastroenterology and urology. Children’s Hospital is also consistently recognized as a national leader in the advancement of healthcare for children. U.S. News & World Report named CHOP No. 4 on its 2022-23 Honor Roll of Best Children’s Hospitals in the nation.

CHOP was also awarded Magnet status by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). Only about 6 percent of hospitals in the United States have achieved Magnet status. Hospitals with Magnet status have lower mortality and morbidity rates, better patient outcomes, and a shorter length of stay. Magnet status hospitals also attract higher quality professionals, ensuring the CHOP staff are among the best.

Innovation and education

A critical part of our mission to be the leader in advancing healthcare for children is the ability to integrate innovative research into our high-quality clinical care. Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute is one of the largest pediatric research programs in the country with more than $100 million in total federal awards and an annual budget of more than $250 million. Our research and expertise, which are supported by philanthropic donations, have led to advancements in preventative care as well as groundbreaking treatments.

We are also affiliated with the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, making CHOP the premier training ground for future pediatric leaders.

Family-centered care

At CHOP, you are a key member of your child’s care team. We believe that creating an environment of collaboration and respect between families and providers helps us deliver the best care for your child.

Family support

We provide support services for your entire family as you navigate through your child’s healthcare journey. Social work, child life, case management and language services are just some of the resources available.

Caring for our community

No matter where you are, CHOP is right by your side. Our main campus in University City has a 546-bed hospital and provides a range of inpatient, emergency, and outpatient care. We also offer care in New Jersey and Pennsylvania through the CHOP Care Network: We currently operate more than 50 pediatrician offices, surgery centers, specialty care centers and urgent care centers, enabling us to provide care for more than 1 million patient visits each year. And we continue to grow to meet your needs: The Buerger Center for Advanced Pediatric Care, which opened in 2015 on the Raymond G. Perelman Campus, is the most state-of-the-art facility for outpatient medicine in the nation.

Specialized programs

CHOP has dozens of specialty programs for serious and rare disorders such as hyperinsulinism, thoracic insufficiency syndrome, Cornelia de Lange syndrome, eosinophilic esophagitis and biliary atresia. Here, you’ll find answers and treatment options that may be unavailable at other hospitals.

Commitment to quality improvement

We strive to ensure our patients all receive quality care. We do this by continuously working to improve the way we do things and holding ourselves accountable to the highest standards. At CHOP, we measure our performance, identify areas where we can improve the care we provide, and then develop quality improvement plans. These quality improvement (or QI) efforts, led by the Office of Clinical Quality Improvement, help us offer your family the best care possible — care that’s getting even better every day. After all, there’s always room for improvement in the field of healthcare. That’s why CHOP is leading the way in developing projects and establishing practices that lead to measurable improvement.
