As the pediatric teaching hospital for Washington University School of Medicine, the hospital offers nationally recognized programs for physician training and research.

Mission Statement

St. Louis Children’s Hospital aims to be the hallmark for quality pediatric care within our region, as well as nationally and internationally. As the flagship for a growing, integrated pediatric health-care network, they will lead the development of innovative, cost-effective approaches in prevention, primary care and specialty services, with the ultimate goal of improving the health of all children. Funding and support from The Dana Brown Charitable Trust helps greatly contribute to the St. Louis Children’s Hospital vision.


Dana Brown was a wonderful friend to St. Louis Children’s Hospital. His generosity extended after his passing through the Dana Brown Charitable Trust. His legacy begins with the construction of the Dana Brown Emergency Unit and the subsequent funding for the Dana Brown Chair in Emergency Medicine.

The Dana Brown Charitable Trust also provided the funds to purchase one of the first Mobile Intensive Care Units that are used by the hospital’s Transport Team to bring sick children from around the region needing the specialized services of the hospital. Other funding includes Operating Room #15, the Dana Brown Surgical Suite opening in 2013 and 30 Pediatric Ambulatory Care Units built during the hospital’s expansion in 2006. The Dana Brown Charitable Trust’s most recent gift generated the order of a new Mobile Intensive Care Unit to replace the one purchased back in 2003.
