Why Should You Choose to be a Nurse at Children's

A Leader in Pediatric Care

Regionally, nationally, and globally, UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh is a leader in the treatment of childhood conditions and diseases, a pioneer in the development of new and improved therapies, and a top educator of the next generation of pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists. With generous community support, UPMC Children’s Hospital has fulfilled this mission since its founding in 1890. UPMC Children’s is named consistently to several elite lists of pediatric hospitals, including ranking on the prestigious U.S. News & World Report annual Honor Roll of Best Children’s Hospitals for 2021-2022.

With 313 beds, Children's delivers among the most technologically advanced procedures for rare, complex diseases as well as progressive treatments for common childhood ailments, such as ear infections and asthma. Children's health care professionals understand that sick and injured children deserve to be treated by those specially trained to care for them — rather than by adult specialists with limited pediatric experience.
