Discovering Brighter Futures for Children Through Partnerships

Our new Research & Innovation Campus will transform pediatric medicine. Together, we will fuel new discoveries, improve access to medical advances, provide primary care in Washington, D.C.’s Ward 4 and offer hope for children with rare diseases.

The new campus serves as a one-of-a-kind convening point for collaboration between public, private and academic partners — all aimed at transforming pediatric medicine, supercharging research and enhancing care for children in our region and around the world. Our nearly 12-acre-site at the former Walter Reed Army Medical Center includes:

  • A nearly 160,000-square-foot Children’s National Research Institute
  • JLABS @ Washington, D.C. — a collaborative Johnson & Johnson Innovation space for start-ups pursuing pediatric medical inventions
  • A state-of-the-art Primary Care Center
  • Children’s National Rare Disease Institute — the world’s home for the diagnosis and care of uncommon genetic conditions
  • An 18,000-square-foot conference theater, including a 299-seat auditorium for collaboration and community use
  • Green, outdoor spaces where kids can be kids despite health challenges

Philanthropy changes lives. This ambitious investment in our greatest resource — children — requires commitment from partners across our community. This includes city and corporate leaders and those willing to invest in the future we envision together.
