Boston Children’s Hospital actively supports legislation that will help the hospital fulfill its mission to provide exceptional clinical care, research new cures, train the next generation of pediatric providers, and improve the health and well-being of children and families.

We have a special interest in, and commitment to, our community health programs, and work hard to develop and sustain systemic solutions to child health concerns. As such, staff in the Office of Government Relations work in close collaboration with city, state and federal legislators to identify and advance legislation that meets this goal. Though we support many bills and initiatives, below are our top priorities.
