Welcome to the NIH Clinical Center

Because we know that this can be a stressful time for children and families, we offer a wide range of resources and services for young patients and their families. Facilities such as The Children's Inn and the NIH Children's School, along with special recreational activities and highly-trained staff, all help make the NIH Clinical Center a caring place for families. This information will help you understand more about the hospital.

This information is prepared specifically for patients taking part in clinical research at the NIH Clinical Center at the National Institutes of Health. It may not apply to individuals who are patients elsewhere. If you have questions about the information presented here, talk to a member of your health care team.
