Unintentional Injury is the Leading Cause of Death For Children Over the Age of One

University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital is nationally renowned for its leading-edge clinical services and compassionate, child-oriented environment of care, but our commitment to children and families does not stop at our front doors.
