Putting Kids and Families First Since 1875

For more than 100 years, our hospital has served children, families, and communities in Greater Philadelphia and surrounding communities.

Caring for children is our passion. Here, we develop, offer, and refine nationally recognized programs through patient- and family-centered, collaborative, and innovative care.

We’re an academic medical center, which means we bring you the latest in diagnostics, treatments, and innovations — all tailored specifically to the needs of your child. Through our research, academics, and clinical care, children and families depend on the leading-edge care found only at an academic medical center.

Partners in Good Health

When we come together, we can do more. Today, the partnership between Tower Health and Drexel University allows St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children to deliver the care your child needs. It offers access to innovative therapies. It supports our physicians, researchers, and care teams. And it drives us to find new answers, new hope, and new opportunities to better the lives of those we serve.

Our mission is to advance the health and wellness of the communities we serve. It’s a tradition that has guided us since we first opened our doors in 1875. And this partnership ensures we are here to serve many generations to come.

Care That Never Stops

More than 220 pediatric experts never stop searching for the answers your child's needs. We bring together the best general pediatric care and world-renowned pediatric specialists all within one academic health system.  

Our wide range of services allows us to provide care for your child during well visits and, when needed, connect you to the best experts across many pediatric specialties and services.

Academic Medicine, Right Here in Your Backyard

Children and families around the region count on us for high-quality services.

We are also the only verified pediatric burn center between Manhattan and Baltimore. Our team of experts offers skilled and compassionate care to children and families when you need it most.

Our main hospital campus in Philadelphia offers many primary and specialty services. And our growing network of outpatient locations — across the Greater Philadelphia region and beyond — make it easier and more convenient for families to access our care.
