Our hospital motto, The Child First and Always® gives us a visible, concise statement of our philosophy. It informs and reassures those who seek our services, and serves as a daily reminder to employees of our commitment to children. This phrase originated from the Hospital for Sick Children in London, England, where it has been used as a motto since the hospital’s beginning in 1852.
