Public policies are critical to the ability of children’s
hospitals to care for all children, through clinical care, training,
research and public health advocacy. As health care policies are debated
at the state and federal levels, The Children's Hospital Association and
its member hospitals work with policymakers to ensure children’s
unique health care needs are not overlooked and that every child has
access to high quality, cost effective primary, preventive and specialty
care services tailored to meet their needs. Find
