Seattle Children's Hospital

Benefiting Uncompensated Care at Seattle Children's.

Seattle Children’s serves as the pediatric and adolescent academic medical referral center for the largest landmass of any children's hospital in the country (Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho).

Uncompensated care ensures that all children in our region receive the best medical care available, regardless of insurance coverage. With the current recession, more families are losing medical insurance and premiums are rising. These unexpected expenses can be quite devastating. When a hospital bill exceeds a family’s ability to pay, Seattle Children’s financial assistance program provides relief. Thank you for bringing healing to children and peace of mind to families during difficult times.

Families around our region are served by Seattle Children's daily. In 2013, 118,420 children benefited from the uncompensated care fund with 115,102 from Washington


Recognized as one of the best in the world!

Consistently ranked as one of the best children's hospitals in the country by U.S. News & World Report, Seattle Children's is recognized internationally for advancing discoveries in cancer, genetics, immunology, pathology, infectious disease, injury prevention and bioethics.

Seattle Children’s comprises Seattle Children’s Hospital, Seattle Children’s Research Institute and Seattle Children’s Hospital Foundation.
