About Boston Children's

Boston Children's has been quietly changing the future of health for children everywhere since 1869. Named the number one pediatric hospital for nine years in a row, Boston Children's is also the largest research center for pediatric medicine anywhere.

We have a legacy of medical breakthroughs; many leading to treatments for adults. Discoveries include the first measles vaccine, the first remission of leukemia and the first solid organ transplant. We have been home to two Nobel Laureates, eight Lasker Award (America's Nobel) winners and four MacArthur ``Genius Grant`` Fellows. Boston Children's receives more NIH grants than any other pediatric institution.
