A+ anesthesia services especially for kids

Choosing where to bring your child for care is a major decision. We understand you want all the information you can get. And you want it in a clear, straightforward form that helps you make the right choice for your family.

That’s why we share our outcomes with you. In medicine, “outcomes” measure the end results of a treatment. By comparing our outcomes with those of other hospitals, locally and nationally, you can see how we rank in terms of keeping patients safe and healthy.

Answering anesthesiology questions

At Children’s, we focus on research and innovations that make a difference at the bedside. From improving day-to-day quality of life for children and teens, to developing new treatment approaches and adopting cutting-edge technologies — our research is completely kid and family-focused.

Children’s is engaged in many types of research, including investigator-initiated studies (led by a Children’s clinician) as well as externally sponsored multi-center trials, observational studies and registries.

Research studies are ongoing in all areas of the hospitals and clinics, and below is one research study on anesthesia and sedation.
