Wellness Promotion :: Nationwide Children's Hospital

Wellness Promotion


Our Wellness Promotion Vision:


We will have the healthiest pediatric population in the country by ensuring that children with special health care needs reach their full potential.


We define our special health care needs population as children who face one or more of these risk factors:
  • Environmental
    Poverty, being in the child welfare system, having contact with the juvenile justice system, or having teenage parents
  • Biological
    Specific or chronic health issues such as  diabetes, prematurity, obesity or asthma

We take responsibility for a population of patients and improving the care they receive.  Combined with our extensive network and our collaborative resources and partnerships, we are able to provide innovative, efficient, and evidence-based treatment and prevention services that will ensure our target population reach their full potential in the community.  To get children with special health care needs to their full potential, Nationwide Children’s will be most effective by functioning as an Accountable Care Organization (ACO).

The Wellness Promotion aspect of our strategic plan will focus on five areas where we believe we can use our unique attributes to have the highest impact on our special health care needs population and deliver measurable outcomes within five years:
