It’s been 40 years since Phoenix Children’s opened within Good Samaritan Hospital as a “hospital within a hospital” and only 20 years since we embarked on building Arizona’s first and only freestanding pediatric hospital. Now, we’re a world-class pediatric healthcare system with renowned programs and centers of excellence; earning a host of clinical accreditations and accolades; recruiting top physicians, executives and researchers; and growing our large and integrated medical group to ensure coordinated, consistent care delivery.
