Sharing the images and stories from inside the world of children’s hospitals
Presented by HUGGIES®, the exhibit celebrates children's hospitals' commitment to the health of all children. From healthy children to those who have rare and complex medical conditions, all children benefit from family-centered clinical care, highly trained pediatricians, revolutionary research and community health programs provided together and only in America's children's hospitals.

Hope. Compassion. Resilience.
These are among the special qualities shared by the children and families served by children’s hospitals and the dedicated people who have made it their life’s mission to provide essential care.

Improving Child and Community Health
Through community outreach and partnerships, children’s hospitals help find remedies for the root causes of the illnesses and injuries they see every day.
The 48 images that comprise the 2017-2018 exhibit were selected by judges from over 180 images submitted by children’s hospitals across the country.
The exhibit debuted in July 2017 on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., during CHA's Speak Now for Kids Family Advocacy Day. Photos from the exhibit also are featured at association conferences, in publications, such as Children's Hospitals Today, and on digital media.
Children's hospitals may lease the exhibit or download a digital version.
