Breaking New Ground in Pediatric
Care Since 1897

Our co-founders, orthopedic surgeon Arthur Gillette, MD, and Carleton College student Jessie Haskins, worked together to start the first-ever hospital with a focus on improving the lives of children who have disabilities. They planted the seed that since has grown into our mission of patient-centered care, innovation and research.
