Welcome to The Children's Hospital at OU Medicine

When a child is sick and needs medical care, it takes special doctors, nurses and staff, who are experts at treating children. It takes special equipment, designed just for children. It takes treatments and procedures created for the small, growing bodies of children. It takes a whole hospital just for children.

At The Children’s Hospital, pediatric staff blends years of training with education, research and technology to improve the lives of children throughout the region.

Our doctors, nurses and staff are trained in pediatrics, the medical treatment of children, so they can understand and support each child's physical, emotional and social needs, while in the hospital. We use language that children can understand and, when possible, medical play to explain procedures to our young patients. We spend time educating parents and caregivers, so they are confident caring for their child after returning home. With a family-centered approach to healing, Children’s offers resources from pet therapy to child life specialists who help families cope with hospitalization and illness.
