About University of Maryland Children's Hospital

UM Children's Hospital

In providing the best possible care for children of all ages, the University of Maryland Children's Hospital (UMCH) takes the slogan "Children Are Our Future" very seriously. Children have specific physiological and emotional needs that differ from adults. That's why everything that we do at UMCH is kid-focused!

In addition to our clinical services, UMCH is a national leader in children's health care research. Our highly respected and well-funded research activities allow us to search for cures to childhood illnesses.
