Strategic Plan

Nationwide Children’s Hospital is on a Journey to Best. Through our new strategic plan we will accelerate that journey with a vision of best outcomes achieved through the best people and the best programs.

Our Journey to Best takes the idea that Everything Matters and hones it with a laser-like focus on best outcomes. We define outcomes as not only what happens at the point of acute care, but also the periods between and after care when a child has better health because of all we did for them. We are also viewing best outcomes in the broadest sense to include access, satisfaction, safety, education, operations and employee satisfaction.

Our success will create the nation’s most comprehensive, integrated pediatric healthcare delivery system, all built on a foundation of pre-eminent programs that integrate research with clinical care. Our staff is the driving force that will make this happen. Our Journey to Best Outcomes is the roadmap for our success over the next five years and beyond. And it will enable us to continue to fulfill our promise that “When your child needs a hospital, everything matters.”
