Mission: We believe all children have unique needs and should grow up without illness or injury. With the support of the community and through our spirit of inquiry, we will prevent, treat and eliminate pediatric disease.

Seattle Children's – Why Work For Us?

We are united by a compelling mission: We provide hope, care and cures to help every child live the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible.

Together, we deliver superior patient care, advance new discoveries and treatments through pediatric research and serve as the pediatric and adolescent academic medical center for Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho – the largest region of any children’s hospital in the country.

In 2018, U.S. News & World Report once again ranked Seattle Children’s among the nation's best children's hospitals – for the 26th year in a row. We received national rankings in all 10 specialty areas evaluated by U.S. News & World Report, and are honored to be the only pediatric medical center in Washington to be ranked.

Hope. Care. Cure.

These three simple words capture what we are here to do. That’s because at Seattle Children’s, compassionate care, breakthrough research and generous donors come together every day for children who need us.

Our Great Benefits

We support a healthy work–life balance. Our benefits include employee care, paid time off, health insurance and retirement savings.

Compassionate, Inclusive Culture

We show compassion and open acceptance to all of our patients and families – and to each other.

We Invest in Our People

Support for professional development is one reason Becker’s Hospital Review listed us as one of 150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare.
