Representing more than 220 children’s hospitals, we are the voice of children’s hospitals nationally.
Children’s hospitals are essential providers, setting the standard for the highest quality pediatric care while training the next generation of pediatricians. With its members, the CHA champions policies that enable children’s hospitals to better serve children; leverages its position as the pediatric leader in data analytics to facilitate national collaborative and research efforts to improve performance; and spreads best practices to benefit the nation’s children.
What we do stronger together
We work with member hospitals to develop forward-thinking solutions for child health and children’s health care backed by 50 years of collaboration. We focus our collective efforts in areas of greatest impact and aggregated strength: policy, quality and safety best practices, and analytics to inform decision-making of clinicians, policy-makers, payers and providers.
We create a learning environment, peer networks and communication channels that enable children’s hospitals to share and learn with each other and from innovators within and outside of the health care industry.
Additionally, through partnerships and alliances with other hospital, physician and child health organizations, we leverage the collective influence of member hospitals to benefit child health and children’s health care. Working together with our members as a unified, national voice for the nation’s pediatric programs fulfills our shared mission of being champions for children’s health.
The Children’s Hospital Association (CHA) advances child health through innovation in the quality, cost and delivery of care with our children’s hospitals.
In carrying out our mission, the CHA staff follow these values:
