When advocates dedicated to children’s health and well-being raise their voices, great things can happen.

Join children’s hospitals and advocates from across the country as we work together to improve access to quality care for all children. With your help, we can ensure our elected officials put forth policies that support children’s unique health care needs.

Representing more than 220 hospitals, the Children’s Hospital Association (CHA) is the voice of children’s hospitals nationally. CHA works hard to promote policies that enable hospitals to better serve kids and is the premier resource for pediatric data and analytics.

Together we:

  • Extended the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for a historic 10 years.
  • Increased funding to train more than 7,000 pediatric specialists at nearly 60 independent children’s teaching hospitals.
  • Worked with Congress to introduce the Advancing Care for Exceptional Kids Act (ACE Kids Act) to improve pediatric care for children with complex medical conditions.
