Boston Children’s Hospital’s Office of Government Relations works with policy decision-makers at the local, state, and national levels to uphold the hospital’s mission of providing exceptional clinical care, research, and training for pediatric providers.

We have a special interest in, and commitment to, our community health programs. We work to develop sustainable and systemic solutions to child health concerns, such as asthma, obesity, child development and mental health.

We closely monitor issues related to public and private sector coverage, access to care and the healthcare regulatory environment. We also pay close attention to research and pediatric workforce concerns. We are proud of our many partnerships and collaborations with community organizations that advocate on behalf of children.
