The Dragonflyer is a special feature in our Take Flight Gallery in our new patient tower. It offers fun for kids and adult alike. But who "created" the Dragonflyer? You may be surprised to find out :)
Here at Dayton Children's our mission is "to improve the health status of all children through service, education, research and advocacy." One way we can do this is to provide educational videos on important health topics such as hand washing, concussions and hyperthermia. Watch the videos on this playlist to hear important tips from our experts on keeping your kids safe and healthy!
We have more than 290,000 reasons to make sure the care we provide is just right. That is the number of infants, children and teens who walk through our doors each year and receive care by our exceptional team of pediatric experts.
Everything, from our colorful, kid-friendly décor to our state-of-the-art technology, is designed with the safety and comfort of your child in mind. Providing your family with the right care for the right reasons is our commitment to you.
Our primary mission is to provide quality health care for children from infancy through adolescence. We strive to be a health care resource for all children of our region regardless of their socioeconomic status. Through our compassionate team of pediatricians, pediatric specialists and clinical staff, we offer comprehensive care in an emotionally supportive setting.
The Comprehensive Care Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders cares for children, teens and young adults, through 21 years of age. Dayton Children's pediatric cancer program partners with the Children's Oncology Group and follows nationally approved protocols for cancer treatment. This allows us to provide the infants, children and teens treated at Dayton Children's with the most current, state-of-the-art cancer treatments available.
A multidisciplinary approach ensures that our team is prepared to meet both the medical and psychological needs of patients and their families. All children are treated regardless of ability to pay.
Dayton Children's cancer program received a full-three year approval from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer after a successful survey in November 2010. This makes Children's one of just 10 approved pediatric programs in the country.
