Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), the oldest hospital in the United States dedicated exclusively to pediatrics, strives to be the world leader in the advancement of healthcare for children by integrating excellent patient care, innovative research and quality professional education into all of its programs.

Since its founding in 1855, CHOP has fostered pioneers in pediatric medicine and is one of the first hospitals in the United States to recognize the importance of treating all aspects of the patient, including emotional well-being and that of the child’s family.

Our commitment to improving the health of all children has remained constant over 150 years with major accomplishments and development of significant programs in a variety of areas including cardiac, genetics, cancer, neonatology and fetal surgery. Like its founders, CHOP’s physicians, nurses and staff share the common goal to make sick children well and to secure a healthy future for families.
