The National Institutes of Health Clinical Center, America's research hospital, is located on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Md. Through clinical research, clinician-investigators translate laboratory discoveries into better treatments, therapies and interventions to improve the nation's health.

The Clinical Center marked its 60th anniversary in July 2013 and dedicated its new hospital, the Mark O. Hatfield Clinical Research Center, in 2004. In 2011, the Clinical Center received the Lasker-Bloomberg Public Service Award given by the Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation. The award honors the CC for serving since its inception as a model research hospital.
