The mission of Children's Specialized Hospital is to be the preeminent provider of specialized healthcare services for infants, children and young adults. Our trustees, employees, and volunteers will embody our values in every interaction with patients, their families, each other and all other stakeholders. The core values at Children’s Specialized Hospital are Compassion, Integrity, Excellence, Innovation, Teamwork & Collaboration, and Fun. Everything we do at Children’s Specialized is to help us create a world where all children can reach their full potential.
The Children’s Specialized Hospital Family Faculty program helps us to empower families to become advocates for their children. Family Faculty are parents and family members whose children have received or are still receiving services at Children's Specialized Hospital Inpatient, Outpatient, or Long Term Care sites. Their own day-to-day experiences provide a unique perspective, understanding, and empathy for families going through similar situations. Family Faculty partner with staff and families to build a respectful and understanding relationship by listening, providing insights, and encouraging positive communication between staff and families.
