Prevent injuries before they happen

In order to fulfill our mission of making life better for children, Children’s Health not only heals sick and injured children, we strive to prevent illness and injury before it happens.

In 2004, Children’s Health initiated its Injury Prevention Program to lessen childhood trauma across the U.S.  Working closely with a network of local, state and global agencies, we work to keep children safe in the communities where they live, play, and thrive.


Emergency Care & Urgent Care

Knowing the difference between emergency and urgent care can be confusing, especially since both imply a serious medical need. Actually, there is a big difference between the two, including the level of care provided.  See which one is right for your child.
