Excitement on the Track, We Need Volunteers, and What We Achieved with Your Help!

Magic at the Kentucky Speedway

For Nationwide Children's Patient Champions, the NASCAR race at Kentucky Speedway was an experience of a lifetime. Not only did five patient champions meet Dale Jr., but they also got the VIP treatment with a trip to see what goes on behind-the-scenes.  Watch the excitement here or by clicking the video above.

Once Again Named to Honor Roll

Nationwide Children's Hospital has once again been named to U.S. News & World Report's Best Children's Hospital Honor Roll, moving up to #7. This top distinction is awarded to only ten children's hospitals with the most exceptional performance across all rankings. In addition to the 2017-18 Honor Roll designation, Nationwide Children's has also been recognized for seven consecutive years in all ten other specialties.

The many recognitions received across our organization reinforce Nationwide Children's continued commitment to providing the highest quality of pediatric care.

We are able to launch new programs, retain world-class talent, and achieve goals such as this honor roll standing in part because of your support.

Thank you!
