About Us

UMC Children’s Hospital is devoted to making sick and injured children healthy and well by combining compassionate, family-centered care with modern technology.

Children are different. They need different health care that focuses on their unique needs, involves their parents from start to finish, and is provided in places designed to be kid-sized and child-friendly. Because they’re growing and developing, children’s health care needs are constantly changing. They require extra time, additional monitoring, specialized medications, and caregivers with the skills and compassion to understand the needs of children.

With this in mind, UMC Children’s Hospital was created.
