community benefit

ensuring children’s health beyond the hospital walls

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 in our region.

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 professionals 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.

Based on our Community Health Needs Assessment, Dayton Children’s identifies the region’s most pressing child health and safety issues and creates an implementation plan in which we build our community benefit activities. We are dedicated to impacting children’s health where it occurs – where they live, grow and play!
