All Children’s Hospital Celebrates 90 Years and Name Change
Wed, 20 Apr 2016
Baltimore, April 20 2016 – As of April 5, 2016, All Children’s Hospital, the Johns Hopkins Medicine pediatric hospital based in St. Petersburg, Florida, officially changed its name to Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital. The hospital announced its new name and logo at an event celebrating its 90th anniversary of providing pediatric health care and service to families.
The partnership between Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital and Johns Hopkins Medicine began in 2011, when All Children’s Hospital became the only hospital in the United States outside of the Baltimore/Washington metro area to join Johns Hopkins.
As part of this collaboration, a significant resource has been developed with the groundbreaking of the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Research and Education Building. This will help further pediatric health care in the southeastern U.S. and around the world.
Mark Stroud, chair of Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital’s board of trustees, says: “Children in Florida will now have access to a global leader in health care that has been on the front lines of fighting catastrophic illness, injury and childhood disease. We expect even more innovative health care options and economic opportunities to emerge from this relationship.”
