Dayton Children’s is accredited by The Joint Commission, an independent, national accrediting body that oversees the safety and quality of health care and other services.  In 2006, we underwent our first unannounced survey by The Joint Commission and received its nationwide seal of approval for pediatric care.

In addition, we are proud of other accreditations and awards which speak to the quality of care we provide:

  • Regional Level III Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU), the region's perinatal referral center, features an award-winning design and quick access to all pediatric subspecialists.
  • Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) , the region's only intensive care unit devoted to pediatrics, won the first-ever Ohio Patient Safety Institute Best Practices Award in 2009 for our outstanding record of decreasing incidence of ventilator-associated pneumonia.
  • Soin Pediatric Trauma and Emergency Center (Level II) is the only verified pediatric trauma center in the region staffed entirely by pediatric specialists. It was verified by the American College of Surgeons.
  • The Comprehensive Cancer Care Center is accredited by the American College of Surgeons and one of only a few approved programs in the country.
