A New Responsibility for Children’s Hospitals: The Health of Neighborhoods

Children’s hospitals in Ohio are making key investments to address a major cause of poor health—substandard housing.

In 2008, Cincinnati Children’s teamed up with the local Legal Aid Society to form the Cincinnati Child Health-Law Partnership (Child HeLP).

Since then, lawyers have been on call to address housing problems for patients and their families.

Child HeLP is one of several recent partnerships Cincinnati Children’s has formed to address factors outside the hospital walls that land people in the hospital.
