Children's Hospital Association Launches National Photo Exhibit

Capturing Hope, Compassion and Resilience of Child Patients and Their Health Care Providers

Washington, D.C. — The Children’s Hospital Association (CHA) launched its 2017 Children’s Hospitals Photo Exhibit this week via an online gallery. The compelling collection of 48 photographs depicts the hope, compassion and resilience shared by child patients, their families and the children’s hospitals providing specialized care. This year marks the first time the photo exhibit has been sponsored by a global corporation like Kimberly-Clark’s leading baby-care brand HUGGIES®. HUGGIES® is the photo exhibit’s exclusive presenting sponsor. 

“HUGGIES® is proud to present the Children’s Hospitals Photo Exhibit,” said Aric Melzl, general manager Baby and Child Healthcare, Kimberly-Clark. “Our support of the children’s hospitals’ mission is a reflection of our belief that all children deserve to have comfort and the best care available to them in order to thrive. We look forward to working with CHA to ensure the photo exhibit is viewed as often as possible and travels to multiple communities served by children’s hospitals.”

“The images in the photo exhibit not only demonstrate how children’s hospitals meet the unique needs of children and their families, they convey the compassion, hope and resiliency inherent in patients and caregivers,” said Amy Knight, chief operating officer of CHA. “Children’s hospitals care not only for the sickest kids, but are focused on keeping all children healthy. Through discovery and collaboration to improve outcomes for their patients, training the nation’s pediatricians, and creating health in our local communities, children’s hospitals benefit all children.”

The photos in the exhibit were selected by a distinguished panel of judges from more than 180 photographs submitted by children’s hospitals across the country. The judges included Lori Epstein, photo director, National Geographic Kids; Lily Francesca Alt, photo director, Parents magazine; Rick Guidotti, founder and director, Positive Exposure; Marvin T. Jones, Marvin T. Jones and Associates; and Kelly Wolfe, public policy director, Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota–Minneapolis and member of the Children's Hospital Today Editorial Advisory Council. 

The Children’s Hospitals Photo Exhibit will be on public display in Washington, D.C. on the following dates:

  • July 10 – 14, 2017 — Rotunda, Russell Senate Office Building
  • July 17 – 18, 2017 — Foyer of the Rayburn House Office Building
