Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, a nonprofit academic medical center established in 1883, is one of the oldest and most distinguished pediatric hospitals in the United States. We offer comprehensive clinical services, from treatments for rare and complex conditions to well-child care. In the 2022-2023 U.S. News & World Report survey of best children’s hospitals, Cincinnati Children’s ranked No. 3 among all Honor Roll hospitals.

The James M. Anderson Center for Health Systems Excellence was established in 2010 to dramatically expand Cincinnati Children’s work in transformational improvement. Cincinnati Children’s has long been committed to providing the best outcomes, the safest care for the children and families we serve and applying all that we learn through research to our own frontline work. Ultimately our success is defined by nothing less than being a catalyst for transformation on a global scale.

In support of our institution’s compelling vision “to be the leader in improving child health,” we have created a comprehensive and robust quality improvement infrastructure. This infrastructure has been central to the widespread measurable improvements being achieved across our continuum of care.
