Dayton Children’s was built on the hopes and dreams of some very dedicated community leaders who wanted a children’s hospital in this region so children did not have to travel far for specialized health care. With this founding spirit, Dayton Children’s continues to deliver on its mission to improve the health status of all children regardless of the ability to pay.
As the region’s only pediatric hospital, we:
- Serve as the community's safety net hospital by caring for all children regardless of their ability to pay, while providing and subsidizing hospital and community-based services that are either limited or unavailable elsewhere in our community.
- Serve as a voice for children through public policy advocacy to change laws, policies or systems leading to the improvement of health and safety for children and families.
- Join with community partners and lend support throughout our region to improve the lives of children and their families.
- Train future doctors and health care providers to become the next generation of high quality, professional pediatric experts.
At Dayton Children’s we are committed to living our mission to improve the health status of all children. Our community benefit activities demonstrate this commitment to our community’s children.
